As we approach the fall of 2021, we have the promise of going back to the pre-Covid ways of functioning in our society.
I have learned that we can never go back to the way things used to be. We are not going back to the past; we are going to create a new future. While we do not know what the future will look like, we have the power to shape the future as thoughtfully and positively as we possibly can.
Today, I present several ways that, through gathering together, we can again help ourselves to shape our collective future.
I am hosting an event on August 16 as a way to help us gather to create our own future:
Join us for an informal happy hour event at Zingerman’s Southside on Monday August 16th from 4-6pm! We’ll be meeting in the Bakehouse Courtyard. The Bakehouse, Creamery, Coffee, and Candy Shop will be open for food, coffee, beer, wine, and cider purchases.
