Vision 11

Tina~ this week I visited the transfer station in Mystic for the first time. I was looking to recycle the many pairs of athletic shoes that had accumulated around our household that I didn't want to end up in a landfill. I f was happy to find this great program that NIKE sponsors to promote recycling. This program allow you to  recycle old shoes into something new like a track, basketball court, or a playground. So cool! Here is the link: http://www.nikereuseashoe.com/get-involved. While I was at the plant in Mystic I took this picture of one of the many walls of trash. I am not sure what will be recycled out of this pile, but it was a good reminder of the choices I make each day by what I purchase.

I am not sure what will be recycled out of this pile and what will end up in a landfill, but was reminded of what I consume and how I choose to help or hinder our environment with my purchases. ~Laura
Vision 11 Tina  I have been thinking about the wisdom of trees and how they slowly and gracefully are witnesses to the passage of time.  I always find peace around the trees in my community because of this.
Laura, I have been thinking about the wisdom of trees and how they slowly and gracefully are witnesses to the passage of time. I always find peace around the trees in my community because of this. Pictured here is a live oak tree at the Old Navy Base in North Charlestonwith the spanish moss delicately hanging from the branches. A Beauty! ~Tina
