It's an intense day for a lot of us - election day in the US - and I thought we could use a Dandelion Hunting refresher.
There is work we can do to make our world better, no matter who wins today's elections. But today does demand a lot.
So here are few Ten Thousand Dandelions-recommended refuges, for when you need a moment.
Anti-racism work isn't work that should be done only if it can be done quickly, perfectly, or in front of an audience, but one of the ways it should be addressed is through representation.
People should be able to see themselves reflected in the representations of the world around them.
First, because this should always be clear. Black Lives Matter. ALL of them.
This shouldn't be a point for argument. Black lives matter/ But - That dialog shouldn't be happening. If all lives matter, then the conversations should go Black lives matter/ Yes, they do.
There's a lot going on, and it can be overwhelming (if you are overwhelmed, that doesn't mean you've screwed up - this really is a lot to process).
But finding little, persistent pieces of joy (mental dandelions!) can help. Bright spots of color can help. Kind words can help. Doing something, even something small, can help.
