Busted at the “dump”

 

Your cardboard box can become money, literally..

This year, I finally went paperless and it’s much easier than I thought it would be. University students have their blogs, I have my website and we can see one another’s work, share ideas and provide and accept constructive feedback. In doing so, we are responsible for that work because we must stand behind it in a very public way and that makes us even more diligent. The whole process is a kind of symbiotic and sustainable way to learn and grow. Recently, I learned that sustainability and green practices means more than simply separating plastic, aluminum, and glass from household trash. Paper is also an important recyclable. We’ve come a long way since my childhood days of “the dump” where boxes, newspaper and all kinds of paper products were dumped into a huge landfill right along with everything else we didn’t want or need.

Sharing ideas makes the world go around...

April Song on the Vineyard

A robin sings in the thicket on the edge.

Ter-eet! Ter-eet!

The wind whisks through the twisted oaks.

Somewhere off in the distance

someone steps on the gas

and the exhaust ripples the morning air

and the Atlantic yawns beneath the front.

A new day.
