Immersed in nature;
once peaceful, pristine, untouched-
marred by carelessness.
A few weeks ago, we traveled down a dirt road just to see where it went. We happened upon an area of lush greenery – so dense, it reminded me a bit of hiking in Shenandoah. Of course, I had to get out and take pictures because, let’s face it, most of Arizona is quite dry and brittle- especially this time of year. As we were getting ready to go, a flash of red caught my eye (see center of photo).
I was disappointed to see it was a paper cup (Panda Express, I think) tossed into a tree. I’d like to think there was a time when people cared and respected the land. I’d like to think we could get there again. The world is not a trash bin and my hope is that those who treat it as such will wake up and see the error in their ways. (And if not, perhaps awakening underneath a trash heap might open their eyes 🙂 )
I hope you have a beautiful (litter-free) Thursday!
