Conversations between Dominique and Ms. Latrice about an array of topics. These topics include health, life, business, relationships, and whatever else we feel we need to discuss.
Arts in Quarantine [#19]
The DL Power Couple discuss how prevalent art has become and will continue to be during quarantine. A lot of Ms. Latrice's artistic engagements have become zoom calls. She has still been able to engage in the arts everyday through her freelance business. Ms. Latrice has also been able to engage in the arts by participating in virtual events with the Indiana Writers Center, Indiana Playwrights Circle, and Playback Theatre through Small Change Interactive. She has definitely remained artistically busy and emphasizes that art engages all five senses. Dominique shares that he's been writing more often and that it's very therapeutic for him. He suggests that people use art as a form of active meditation during times of stress and uncertainty. Quarantine will likely lead to a recession, and recessions make people feel insecure about their current situations. Both Dominique and Ms. Latrice want you to know that you are amazing and that you are enough.
Quarantine Chronicles [#18]
The DL Power Couple describes how the COVID-19 quarantine has impacted their lives. Ms. Latrice had paid performances cancelled and she even had to cancel a staged reading of her own play. Dominique was supposed to be part of an exchange program between Germany and the United States. Both Dominique and Ms. Latrice have made necessary adjustments and have adapted to "Stay Home" instruction. Both pay attention to their mental diets by avoiding the continuous onslaught of negative news broadcasting. They also focus on health consciousness and getting good sleep. The craziness surrounding COVID-19 will definitely lead to short and long term changes, but that does not mean these changes will be bad.

Blending Families Through Engagement [#15]
Let's be clear about being engaged and engagement with family thereafter.
Thinking & Over Thinking [#14]
Dominique & Ms. Latrice talk about making decisions without overthinking. Constant overthinking can make life stagnant. It also provides an opportunity to think about who we actually are and why we do the things we do. Ms. Latrice emphasizes that nothing is guaranteed and that anyone who knows what they want should go get it without hesitation. Dominique references Nikola Tesla's quote on thinking clearly verses deeply, stating that one can be insane and think deeply, but one has to be sane to think clearly. Both emphasize that children do not overthink things and that's part of why they learn so fast. There are many ideas shared and gems dropped.
