plugs and laudations
When my Ian turned one, we bought him the Radio Flyer Turbo Turtle, and like any Radio Flyer product we’ve used, we’ve enjoyed it so, and I’ve never been mad at it – not even once at its strange turtle voice or its fast scramming sounds. Because we have hard-surface floors, and the wheels spin 360 squealing degrees, and the turtle has a basket for all kinds of things like the remote control, my cell phone, and secret stashes of craisins and milky sippy cups, this toy is absolutely his favorite. I highly recommend this as “the big gift” for your 1.5 to 3 year old, and I give it 5 out of 5 better-than-sock slides on the dining room floor.
I’m obsessed with The Kujilana Project. Seth and I are obsessed. It’s a world away. It’s new non-fiction in the voice of a historically mute people. I highly recommend your supporting The Kujilana Project. It is art. It is planting seeds. It is medicine and food. It is Gospel. Check out their blog. I give it 5 out of 5 video cameras in the narrative hands of an empowered Yao.
Now watch this Good Be Tanyas video of “Human Thing.” You’ve got to watch it till the end. It gets me right in the throat with one of those fat teary smiles. Lawsy, I give it 5 created, wide sassy hips out of 5.
Does your post Plug or Laud something or someone great today (Thursday)? Look around and recognize all the jobs well done. Let’s eulogize the ones who encourage us to live better, the ones who make us laugh, the ones who make us want to be more creative, or the ones who help us keep a better house. It can be technical, personal, spiritual, or material. Let’s practice the gift of encouragement together and at the same time let each other in on the things that make us tick.
