Earth Day



Here I am planting trees on a very cold Earth Day.




 The weather went from summer like to winter  in one day, so hmm, is there such a thing as climate change?  I think yes , not that we are really doing much to stop it.

 When a young woman asked me if I wanted a sign to put in my lawn "Stop the Pipeiline" or something like that, I pointed out the  scores of SUV's and trucks parked in the lot at the Botanical Gardens.  As long as we continue to promote the use of gas guzzling vehicles; turning out a light or planting a tree on Earth Day  makes us feel good,  but isn't doing us much good.  I took a free shuttle to the event. A smoky, smelly, vehicle it was; so  much for my efforts to lessen global warming. Well, I keep trying.


This old tree has seen better days.  



As for me. Only 4 more days till retirement!!

Hi there. I really like your site. I am a writer who also has MS. I am putting together a poetry anthology by writers who have MS. All poems talk about the MS experience. Proceeds of this book will benefit the MS community in Dallas, TX, where I live. Would you be interested in submitting a poem? Please contact me at dallaswestie@gmail.com. Thank you.
