“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity
belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong,
we may begin to use it with love and respect.”
Trash - by Betsy Seeton

I am happy to report that my pledge to stop using plastic shopping bags is going better than I thought. I'm finally remembering to bring my own cloth bags every time I go! I'm even bringing my own containers for deli items so I don't have to continue wasting throw away plastic containers. AND I'm avoiding as much plastic packaged containers as I can. No more plastic water bottles. No more plastic soda pop or the flavored drinks. No more packaged meats in those thick plastic containers. Even the fruit I buy isn't packaged each time in a new plastic bag. I don't know why I haven't been doing this for years.... Again, huge kudos to those who have been. Each time I avoid a plastic bag, I feel like I've done something to help save the life of a bird or mammal.
I'm an artist, writer, photographer, private investigator and an activist in small ways.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
