Another Beautiful Blog

Be still my heart. Through Quill Cottage I have discovered Life @RuffHaven. Not only does Marianne share my love of senior pooches, but she is a real nature lover as well!

If you visit her blog and scroll down a little, you will find a beautiful video from YouTube that will speak volumes through art and music. The message is and has been my mantra for several decades. We are destroying this earth so fast that it makes my heart sick.

I try very hard to live what I preach and leave as small a footprint on this planet as I can. I compost most of my garbage. I re-use cardboard and old carpeting as landscape cloth. I re-use plastic bags for dumping used litter box nastiness into. I combine as many errands as I can into one outing. Even though I am struggling financially, I continue to donate to the NRDC and other nature and animal related organizations. I talk to people about pet overpopulation and the importance of spaying and neutering pets. Just this Saturday there were two pick up trucks of puppies being given away in the WalMart parking lot. I gave the owners information about two low-cost spay/neuter options locally. I use minimal chemicals in my yard and gardens. I eat chicken and turkey very sparingly.

If you do one small thing a day, it will make a huge difference to the world we share.

I certainly didn't intend to get on my soap box, but that video really touched me. I hope you go visit Marianne's beautiful blog. She creates gorgeous pieces of art work.
