A Respectful Pause
I was going to post about spaghetti squash and meatballs this afternoon, but I can’t seem to muster the effort nor do I think this would be in good taste (pun not intended actually). For those of you who know me outside of the internet, you know my love of cooking is equaled only by a few things: passionate political debates, amazing live music, encouraging people to pursue education… Something I’m also very passionate about is mental healthcare, which today is especially on the top of many people’s minds. So, for today, instead of planning our dinners or shopping for groceries, I hope we each tell those we love that we love them, listen attentively to our friends and acquaintances with a special attentiveness to those who express despair depression and loneliness, and remember that we belong to one another. If someone seems like maybe they need help, they probably do. Please do what you can to connect them with professional attention if necessary. Be courageous in doing this – It can save families, save lives.
