Self-Care: Visit From a Best Friend


One of my best friends, Kellen Young, came from Boston for a visit December 6-8, 2016. That’s us on the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island.

A recurring part of my account on this website will be self-care. All the organizers and activists I’m learning from always talk about how important it is to care for yourself first. If you aren’t taking care of your basic needs, including mental health, you will burn out and not be effective.

One of my best friends who I met during my time working as a reporter at WLEX-TV from 2006-2010 in Lexington, Kentucky came to visit Seattle for the first time on December 6, 2016. Kellen is now an executive producer at Boston’s ABC tv station, WCVB-5.

Kellen’s visit was timed perfectly as I needed a break from thinking deeply about what’s going on in our city and country. Kellen and I discussed the election and our current situation a little bit, but mostly we just gossiped, visited Seattle landmarks and had some good drinks. We both needed it.
