In January 2015, it’s time to start something fresh, new.
THE MIX (web-blog – emagazine – whatever you want to call a digital magazine/blog) is this fresh new egg, a mind-hatching thought for you and for me.
We (Carol Hand, Patricia Busbee and I and friends who blog) plan to invite writers to write about ancestry in a new way, in their own way, with a look at how “mixed” we are as humans. None better than the other.
[My opinion: Race doesn’t exist. It’s constructed by people who oppress others deliberately and subtly. We are all people of color.]
Once we see how related we are to everyone else, we have a fighting chance as humans to refresh/change/reboot the planetary awareness and change our/your/their views as humans – how we are ALL related. (The Lakota phrase MITAKUYE OYASIN speaks to this – and it is a great honor/compliment to be told “we are all related.”)
So, my friends-relatives-readers, please share this post with your circle of writer friends and let’s kick this off in a good way. Here’s to JANUARY! THE MIX! Start writing! Email me: email@example.com and let me know if you are interested in contributing.
It’s open to EVERY HUMAN who can type and email!
Please stay tuned… Lara Trace Hentz (co-editor)
