Pause when agitated or doubtful

We all contribute to society and to what is unfolding in one way or another. One of the ways average citizens contribute is by reacting emotionally to an event and spreading falsehoods. As someone with a platform, I try very very hard to pause and let the news cycle play out. I try to do my due diligence on everything -- I will get things wrong -- but I will always correct myself if I've spread something false or under false pretenses. Making a satirical news show that skewers all of this presents and even greater challenge and when there are events that happen in rapid succession like there were the last 72 hours, I would be doing you and myself a disservice if I didn't allow some time to process what the fuck is happening.

One of the reasons I hesitated to shoot #DumspterFire yesterday is because in the wake of things like what happened Wednesday there is always the same pattern. The original videos come out. The narrative is shaped. Everyone lines up in their tribes or teams and...

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

I am a member of a neighborhood Buy Nothing group on Facebook. A woman reached out asking if anyone had an aloe plant they could spare. She posted a photo of herself and explained she was going through chemotherapy for breast cancer, and heard that aloe would help for radiation treatments. Not only did dozens of people offer her aloe, but even more offered to go on walks with her, cook her meals, and do any errands she needed. I delivered her reusable gel ice packs to help with the burns.

Yesterday on the subway, a man was begging for money. Another man gave him a $20, said he had been homeless at one point, and that it is possible to turn things around.

There is goodness out there. There is goodness in here.
Sending y'all lots of love and peace. I hope you're finding kindness and warmth wherever you are. 💖

Whatever the verdict is, I’m prayin’ for the whole Pham in the states! I hope y’all stay safe and away from crazed rioters❤️
