Lunch with Lindsay: Election Month

Election 2020 feels like ages ago. Why am I posting this video only now?

Well, 2020.

In Fall 2020, I was focused on my full-time job as an assistant director in my department; teaching a course for a second job; managing medical plans and care; serving on the board of a women’s empowerment organization; serving on the leadership team of an antiracist group; getting onboarded onto my hospital’s patient and family advisory council; reconnecting with a diversity, equity, and inclusion professional development program that I completed in the past; and as I continue to write … possibly engaging in more than I should have in the fall.

What can I say? As a cancer patient and survivor, I have needed activities to keep me connected with others. Now most of that connection has been virtual, but that is what I have had to do in the name of my health during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

By the way, this video is not solely about Election 2020. It is a snapshot of what life was like for my friend and me during that month. Although I recorded this video less than two months ago, it feels like a few eras ago in American history. The recordings for Lunch with Lindsay are partially like talk shows and partially like home videos for me. They are a sign of the times.

As it gets colder, it does get harder to do socially distanced activities. Someday soon, I would love to have these conversations like the one I did for Lunch with Lindsay: Election Month be in person rather than by Zoom.

Until that day comes, these virtual conversations will continue to be my main mode of communication.
