Dream on, sucker

How come I can’t take a walk in peace?

I dream of the day when the path of my walk is clean and free of junk.

One day there won't be any junk or trash - or worse - to pick up. But that's probably a pipedream, isn't it?

One day’s take after about 45 minutes of walking. WTF is wrong with people? I’m afraid to know the answer.

No more empty (or half empty) Bud Lite or Diet Coke bottles, no more mashed Pizza Hut pizza boxes or – heaven forbid – those little plastic flossing thingies. Those drive me nuts.

It’s bad enough that I end up having to PSU but it just seems the norm. I hope I’ve got enough plastic bags.

About Dave Bradley (262 Articles)
I'm the one behind two totally unrelated blogs; one on 15 years of writing a weekly letter to my kids (plus other recipients), the other on my localized environmental responsibility. I'm a writer by trade and both endeavors are accepted practice for me. As for the letters, my adult children Ellen and Reid may have seen letters as corny at one point, but it's accepted practice for them, too, to find something in their mailbox other than bills and junk mail. Email and texting don't do a lot for me for a lot of different reasons. Snail mail has its place in the communicative world so as long as they keep selling stamps, I'm buying. As for 'Pick Up Your Path' and the environment, I advocate what citizens can do themselves to take a direct hand in their neighborhood environment. But Pick Up Your Path is also a general environmental blog. It may be largely about litter and trash, but both of those are just one element of the total environmental picture.
