I didn’t want to…

This was not the best of mornings.

After walking in the door about midnight after a long day of west-to-east flying home from Seattle, I didn’t want to get up early. When I did, I didn’t want to go on my walk, and after sucking it up and heading out the door, I didn’t want to pick up trash because, after a week away I knew what would be awaiting me.

And it was.

Some welcome home. A solid bag and a half full of refuse.

Some welcome home. A solid bag and a half full of refuse.

It didn’t take long to get back in the groove; i.e. a profanity now and then (then again, Coors Light and Bud Light cans, Coca Cola cups and Deer Park water bottles will bring out the worst), plus the expected finds of assorted polystyrene and dozens of other shards of plastic. (Unexpected was the lid to a large Rubbermaid bin.)

It’s good to be back. Too bad so many ‘old friends’ were waiting for me.

About Dave Bradley (259 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.
