It’s been a tumultuous time since I last wrote here . . . We’ve had a complete shutdown, a re-shifting of priorities, a re-modeling of operations in every sector, and a social uprising. And none of this is complete/over.
We’re grappling with trying to understand, survive, and recover from a global pandemic–and doing it all at once! We’re on a 400+ year journey of understanding, surviving, and recovering from foundational, institutionalized, and continued injustices–a system ingrained and enshrined for centuries will not topple in a day, or a week, or a month.
It’s not exactly the time to sit back and sip coffee right? But, we are entitled to enjoy a cup or two–and we do need our energy, especially as we can continue to innovate and advocate.
So, I’ve returned here. It will be a gradual return, but I’m excited to write and explore, as I adapt to a new normal and fight for something better. Cheers to being back, and to coffee ☕
I’m still drinking coffee, but only at home; I will post a few pictures here and there on Instagram; however, my efforts for reading and writing, for posting and sharing, will be centered on Quarantined Praise.
Stay safe. Practice social distancing. We will come back to all things coffee, and all other things normal, soon enough.
