Thank you to my friend Novus Lectio, for her nomination. As I may have mentioned before, she is an enviably curious-minded individual who fathoms truth in all places, taking on fascinating and noble pursuits of knowledge. Her blog is a veritable smorgasbord of poetry, artistic talent, stories and much, much more. Well worth checking out!
If you have nominated me for an award or challenge, I do adore completing them and I am always so grateful to receive them. I will try to complete the pending nominations in the next five weeks before I go travelling, but if I do not manage to, then I will complete them on my return. I have them all numbered now, so I don’t lose track.
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
- Nominate three bloggers each day.
Man is the only living being who cuts trees, makes paper, and writes “SAVE TREES” on it.
Recycling has been close to my heart recently.
I watched an episode of Blue Planet, with the adorable David Attenborough, and ached to see the damage our plastic waste is doing to the world. Somehow, most of it seems to end up in the sea. The little particles break down over time and do damage to our wonderful marine life. Our waste floats in colossal islands creating fatal playthings for dolphins and other innocent creatures.
Not long after, I heard that The Queen of England has banned all disposable cutlery and plates in her palace—way to go, hallelujah, someone influential is starting the trend. I look at all the produce to buy in the supermarket, either it comes in made-to-dispose-of plastic packaging, or plastic bags are provided to place your veg into. There is not a brand of cotton buds that are spared a spear through the center with this stuff, it is ubiquitous in our throw-away society, and perhaps most sadly about our weekly shopping trip, only half the stuff we buy in plastic packaging is recyclable.
Next time I go shopping, I will be the dotty-headed oddity who brings my own recycled brown paper bags to put my veg into. A change can start in the smallest, dottiest of places.
This challenge is by no means obligatory, it is for fun only, and there is no deadline for completion. If you wish to participate, I nominate:
