- Take a moment to read about the history of Native Americans, their beautiful and varied pre-colonisation societies, and their gradual extermination by white planters, frontiersmen and the US military.
- Consider putting those fireworks away for the evening, as many veterans who have returned home from far-away battlefields with PTSD report Independence Day celebrations can act as a trigger.
- Do something worthwhile to turn America into the place you want it to be: talk to your neighbours about how to solve a problem in your hood, join a workplace union, donate to Planned Parenthood.
for the rest of this week i’ll be focusing on specialized gifts for your valentine, starting with gifts for plant lovers!! a glossy, japanese floral-inspired pink-and-white planter and drainage dish duo is an ideal gift set for any succulent fiend.
i’ve been a huge star wars fan my whole life (save episodes 1 through 3 …) and i’m always on the lookout for cool throwbacks like these air plant planters! here i’m featuring the millennium falcon and the death star, which are available in many colors — including ‘c3po gold’ and ‘r2d2 silver.’ AWESOME!
