A Little Trash Pedalling and Reflecting on Earlier Earth Days
There was also a "lighter" version by Brewer & Shipley...
But if you stayed up late at night you were able to hear the best version of all on FM radio...
Rough translation of chant: "Water spirit feelings springin' round my head, Makes me feel glad that I'm not dead"
This Kenyan proverb also applies:
Treat the Earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents.
It was loaned to you by your children.
This afternoon's splendid weather afforded Mrs. Trashpaddler and I an opportunity for a little 'trash pedal' in our local haunts. As usual, most of the trash was in the immediate vicinity of streams and culverts. The total was a modest 19 pieces of roadside litter. The breakdown: 8 recyclable (2 redeemable) and 11 miscellaneous rubbish. Combined with an even more modest haul of 3 plastic bags while paddling the Concord River yesterday, my YTD total stands at 1802. Happy Earth Day!
