Peopling a little better!

dino bracelet pinWhen Ra and I had coffee a couple weeks ago, she mentioned that Green Embers would be helping her produce a spiffy new vlog. (I’m pretty sure she didn’t actually use the word “spiffy,” but that was the gist of it!)

As expected, Ra did marvelous work breaking down some difficult, charged subjects in friendly, easy to understand*, totally non-threatening ways. That’s a virtual miracle with topics like shame, discrimination, prejudice, and privilege, where it’s often hard not to instantly feel wary and exhausted just hearing the words.

Those words + Ra + spoons = totally approachable = yay.

Ra introduces the vlog as being about “kindness and people and how to people a little better.” I’d say that’s spot on.

* The fact that Littler J’s entire review was, “Could I get a green spoon?” is a better reflection of the fact he’s two than of the video. 🙂

    That was absolutely beautiful, filled with knowledge, love, and thoughtfulness.

      Agreed! I look forward to the upcoming videos. Though I don’t usually watch so much as listen, it’s easy to watch Ra … especially with Littler sitting on my lap.

    Very cool – I want a green spoon too!

      I meant to look for some at the store yesterday, but it totally slipped my mind in all the nostalgic reflection! Next time. 😉

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I agree with Samara, Ra makes such an amazing host. 🙂

      She really does … as you make an amazing producer! I look forward to seeing more from both of y’all. 🙂

    We watched it again today. A fantastic opener to some big, intimidating topics. The spoons analogy is adorable – I don’t know how Ra kept a straight face😊

      The spoons make it so approachable, taking away some of the native (sometimes defensive) responses we have to human examples! I plan on using spoon examples in face to face conversation myself now. It might help to have a few spoons of my own in the chasm of my purse. :p

      Thank you for watching, and saying this! I’m glad I posted this so that I know exactly where to find it when I’m feeling gloomy and/or defensive. 🙂
