KENOSHA ⏤ I decided to record my initial thoughts following the guilty verdicts returned against Derek Chauvin for murdering George Floyd.

S2 Ep. 03: 'Loneliness is part of life.' Inside the Mind of Daniel Thompson

"It's okay to be lonely. It makes the times you don't feel that way all the better." In this episode, I talk about my personal experience with loneliness, and my own wish that, as a society, we would collectively be more honest about our own feelings of loneliness.  If you like this podcast, check out my other work at http://www.theuptownobserver.com. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/mind-of-daniel-thompson/support

  5. Ep. 06 – 'Addiction'

Because I feel like maybe some people are feeling a little in shock by the Chauvin verdict as, historically, this is just the fairytale ending for people of color. 

Not the one we actually get when loved ones are taken from us, like George Floyd was taken from family and friends.

In fact, I found myself dealing with complex and, at times, confusing emotions following the verdict.

Because it’s justice. It is.

There’s joy in that. There’s rest and a sigh of relief in the hope in that.

But there is much further to go, and some of us are currently very tired.
