The Sober Creative is a podcast where we debunk the myth of the tortured artist, discuss sobriety and creativity as daily practices, and interview guests who cultivate and embody these principles surrounding sobriety and creativity wholeheartedly in their lives.
In today's episode on Middles, we discuss the sometimes grueling state of things in the long trek between beginning and end. Whether it be a new project, dulled after the fleeting first love joy, or a complicated life-long journey of sobriety--middles are hard; they deserve an episode all their own considering ways we can navigate them.

The Good Fight
Today is the day to talk about not today...but yesterday, and tomorrow.
We cover how to be for ourselves when our behaviors don't change, no matter how hard we try. I discuss pivoting in the direction of what we are interested in, rather than scolding ourselves for not having want we want more than life.
Fact is, if we want something more than life...there's something bigger going on we ought to take a look at--Cause life's where its at!!!

Today's show covers suffering while staying sober. We talk about the gifts that grow from staying on the razor's edge of the moment to moment living, in the difficult situations and circumstances where all we want to do is fix, control or annihilate "what is".

The Grief Episode
Today I discuss the gifts of grief. I discuss the integration of grief, sobriety & love. We can see how grief acts as a deconstruction of the people/concepts/things we love, and is a vehicle to remind us of the value we have assigned to them. There is also discussion around the naturally unfolding creative flow that can occur when we are present to and intimate with, grief; it helps us to process both the large and subtle losses of our lives.
Talk with Husk Nashville's former Executive Sous Chef Davis Reese, on Boundaries, Baking & Being Honest
Our episode this week is rich in Davis Reese's story of getting sober, finding a new medium of creativity in culinary/pastry work, and seeing the ways in which he could create boundaries while still being a shoulder and friend to those in need who ask. Davis found boundaries, baking and big belly laughs in sobriety. Ironically, I mention Davis getting "full" so as to be able to give-- Funny, because he's a chef...eh? eh? I'm funny! Okay.

more please 🙏🏼
so many gems within this podcast .. honest, raw, compassionate, kind .. a depth of experience deftly delivered —
not sure why it ended but hoping for more, wise friend 🙏🏼
From my Dad:
Honest, open and non-judge mental. encouraging , supportive and empowering.
Can’t wait to hear what’s next.
From Dad again:
Loved the “show up” presentation. “Rules to serve as tools”. Lovely voice and content of meditation, being present for yourself rather than to please others.
Totally appreciate that the author does such a great job staying on topic.
This podcast is amazing. The stories and insights shared in just the first few episodes can be applied not just by the creative or by the person practicing/seeking sobriety. They can be utilized by ANYONE who is trying to live life a little more meaningfully. What is available so far has struck a chord in me multiple times. I was blown away. Will definitely be listening to upcoming episodes.
