Bridges Between

Scroll down for ODD SHOT Monday. . .


RuneE is sponsoring this monthly challenge on the first Monday of every month. Building Bridges is subject to open interpretation.

About two weeks ago, I went to the park downtown where they had the annual Recycled Arts Festival..

I saw neat benches that had been salvaged from the dump.

I saw creations made from junk metal by artists.

I saw the inner soles of shoes being used for a cute sign.


I saw creative benches.







There was so much more and it was all about recycling!

So what does this have to do with BRIDGES BETWEEN? A LOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When things are recycled, we are taking care of the earth. When we take care of the earth WE ARE the BRIDGE FOR THE FUTURE GENERATIONS to enjoy the earth when they live here because we have taken care of it by not throwing everything away. We find new uses for things. We recycle! This is a most important message to today's generation who grew up with FAST everything. It is our responsibility to teach our children and grandchildren to care for the earth for the future generations: to build more bridges between for their children and children's children.

That was a post I enjoyed very much! Apart from the many inventive uses (and reuses) of "garbage", the message underscored one of the most important problems of our time - the way we treat our environment and the way we exploit our resources.

Very good!

It is true that we must bridge the gap... The gap of ignorance about our environment. If we don't take care of our planet, our civilazation will cease to exist.
