A TIME TO REMEMBER
MY THOUGHTS

Human beings have the power of communication and the capacity for good beyond belief but there are many among us who lack these traits and for the most part are vein shallow and false. Animals do not show vanity or act falsely and what you see is genuine. So, animal truth is far more believable than human truth. Humans just kill because they can and lie for their own twisted greed. This is very evident in Governments because, they become corrupted and forget why they are there in the first place. That is for the good of their country, environment, the planet and their citizens.                                                Dawnie's Australian Flag

WALK IN BALANCE
A TIMELESS MESSAGE OF WISDOM
Perhaps you think the Creator sent you here to dispose of us as you see fit.
If I thought you were sent by the Creator, I might be induced to think you had a right to dispose of me. Do not misunderstand me, but understand fully with reference to my affection for the land.
I never said the land was mine to do with as I choose. The one who has a right to dispose of it is the one who has created it. I claim a right to live on my land and accord you the privilege to return to yours. Brother, we have listened to your talk coming from the father in Washington, and my people have called upon me to reply to you.
And in the winds which pass through these aged pines
we hear the moaning of their departed ghosts. And if the voices of our people could have been heard, that act would never have been done. But alas, though they stood around, they could neither be seen nor heard. Their tears fell like drops of rain. I hear my voice in the depths of the forest, but no answering voice comes back to me. All is silent around me. My words must therfore be few. I can say no more. He is silent, for he has nothing to answer when the sun goes down.
~Nimiputimt Chief Joseph, Nez Perce~

ANIMAL DAY
 BUTTERFLY

WE DIDN'T HAVE THE GREEN THING WAY BACK WHEN...OR DID WE?

 

Our older generations from the years of yore certainly weren't perfect and made

 many mistakes along the way but on the whole

I think the older generations footprints will be less traceable than the latter…

Because they certainly were re cyclers out of necessity.

They made jars for preserves and jams from old beer bottles

by heating a ring of iron in the fire and putting it around the neck of the bottles

and thus cutting it off, a bit of sanding to smooth the edges for safety.

Then they were filled with jams and other condiments and sealed with brown paper.

So I thought this story below was interesting and a food for thought.

 

THE GREEN THING

 

Checking out at a local supermarket…

The young cashier suggested to the much older woman,

that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.

The older woman apologised and explained.

 

“We didn't have this green thing back my earlier days.”

 

The young cashier said.

“Now that’s our problem today…

Your generation did not care enough to save our environment and the planet for future generations.”

 

She was right…Our generation didn't have the 'green thing’ in our day.



But way back then, we returned milk bottles, soft drink bottles and beer bottles to the store, got a small refund that went towards our new purchases.

The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilised and refilled,

so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled.

 

She was right…Our generation didn't have the 'green thing’ in our day.

 

Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags,

that we reused for many numerous and varied things, most memorable besides wrapping presents and lining fruit cake tins and making patterns 

was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our schoolbooks.

This was to ensure that public property,

(the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scrubbing’s.
Then we were able to personalise our books on the brown paper bags.

 

But too bad we didn't do the "green thing" back then.

 

We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator or lift in every store and office building.

We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks

 

But she was right. We didn't have the "green thing" in our day.

 

Back then, we washed our baby's nappies because the throw away kind were not invented or even heard of.

We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts...

Wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days.

Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.

Even the calico flour bags were washed and made into clothing for the kids, nothing wasted. 



But that young lady is right; we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

 

Back then we had one TV if we were very lucky, or radio, in the house not a TV in every room.

And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief

(remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Queensland.

In the kitchen, we blended, whipped and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us.

 When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail,

 we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap.

Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn.

 We used a push mower that ran on human power.

We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.

 

But she's right; we didn't have the "green thing" back then.

 

We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water.

We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen,

 and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.

 

But we didn't have the "green thing" back then.

 

 Back then, people took the train, tram or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked

 instead of turning their Mums into a 24-hour taxi service in the family's $45,000 SUV or van,

which costs what a whole house did before the "green thing.

"We had one electrical Outlet plug in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances.

And we didn't need a computerised gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.

But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because…

 

We didn't have the "green thing" back then?

 

THINK ABOUT IT!
