Well I think it's fine building jumbo planes
or taking a ride on a cosmic train
switch on summer from a slot machine
get what you want if you want - 'cause you can get anything

I know we've come a long way
 we're changing day to day
 but tell me where do the children play?

-Cat Stevens

these are a few of the things we saw as we walked the beaches yesterday

we live on an island after all

winds blow and seas storm

all things return to the sea

so water bottles and what not that are blown from recycling bins

travel through streets and neighborhoods

into waterways - into rivers 

into the seas

back up onto beaches 

where the tides carry them back out

until they are broken down into tiny microscopic

pieces and are consumed by marine life

who then either die themselves

or are consumed

by guess who?


  1. So shall we sow, so shall we reap,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I think its time we humans take care now

  2. Great post, it is a shame to walk down a beach and see trash. If only more people would care more for their environment and put trash where it belongs. Great post, enjoy your new week!

  3. Oh, yes! You've hit on a pet peeve of mine! Ocean {or any kind} of pollution. I, too, love the seashore and my heart hurts when I see what we're doing to our beaches and tidal areas. What will our children and grandchildren do? What are we leaving them? And great photos!

  4. So sad to think we are such poor caretakers of our world.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
