Dandelion Hunting - Election Edition

Dandelion Hunting - Election Edition

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.

Black Lives Matter. Representation Matters. Part 2

Black Lives Matter. Representation Matters.  Part 2

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.

Going Dandelion Hunting - looking for little, persistent pieces of joy

Going Dandelion Hunting - looking for little, persistent pieces of joy

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.
