Short, gorgeous videos – you have to watch them!.

Here’s Kevin Kelly’s description:

”…hundreds of videos about making traditional Chinese rural things from scratch with traditional tools — in an extreme way. She’ll make a silk comforter by first raising silk worms. She’ll make her own soy sauce by first growing soy beans. She’ll make some bamboo furniture in a day, starting with harvesting the bamboo. Plus she plays guitar and sings! To her 50 million followers in China, her idyllic and blemish-free videos are soothing and an antidote to their overworked urban lives. She delivers nostalgia for the country life they left — without the drudgery and starvation. To her 8 million foreign followers, like me, watching her on YouTube, her impossibly romantic videos are cinematic glimpses of vanishing arts and crafts, of amazing and ingenious ways millions of people thrived in the past. I could watch them for hours. “
 
 
First I watched full moon rice, then soybeans, then ginger…

Link seems to start in the middle, this might work better. If not, just be sure to start at beginning.

I discovered her a few months ago and bingewatched all her videos in a couple days. I love her. My favorite one is the one in winter where the lamb is following her around. I think shes making a cloak.

I’m struck by the labor and the organization. I plant and nurture and grow food for my family but I’m haphazard and disorderly. I do change shoes at my door, though. At least I have that much down!

aspire, thanks for posting this. I shared it on Facebook and found out one of Shiny Taurus’ cousins is now learning about Chinese culture. The timing is perfect.
