White People, Do Your Work! ... Lady Invitation
This title is a challenge from people of color/culture, especially from trauma therapist Resmaa Menakem, author of My Grandmother’s...
Our family strives to live life deep in socio-economic blended community as a wholistic model of American Dream prosperity. The untempered "normative" Western cultural models of continuous "up, more & go" have become shallow and exhausting to us. Plus, these lifestyle patterns have fostered community models that rarely allow time or space to do everyday life on a person's home dirt with people not just like themselves.
This creative space is where we tell our stories, share experiences and hopefully craft new ideas of mutuality through others input. We want to nurture dialogue and deeper thought around the "lived experiences" of others... "others" not just like us.
May we all be encouraged to think deep, dream creatively big
and choose to live different for the common good!
