Pandemic-induced binging – what books, movies, or shows have you lost yourself in? What guilty pleasures have gotten you through this last year?
President Biden spoke of an uncivil civil war in his Inaugural Address. What is civility and why is it important? How can it be cultivated?
“Socialization amongst a pandemic” – This will be an opportunity to talk about our worries regarding how the pandemic has affected our children’s social and emotional development. Along with our hopes, fears, and a positive “swing” on things.
“Coping and caring with an empty cup” – How we can offer our all when we have so little left to give and how to fill our cup when our options are limited.

Given our love of conversation, discourse and pot lucks, we are hoping this provides a platform for some of these things. So, pour yourself a beverage and let’s spend some time together!
