“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” ( Barack Obama ) on the path least traveled…

Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂 Me 1 copy

( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I  do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” ,  no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life  🙂 ).. 🙂

There are no cherry trees in sight, but in spite of life’s challenges, many forms of love… 🙂

 

And the apple tree bloom.. 🙂

Hello Diary,

Earth day is every day here on the path least traveled.. And I try to do what I can to help Mother Earth and hopefully a bright future for all…. Now, I know that for many reasons not everyone can do what I can do, but I believe that there may be subtle changes that folks can do in and around their home…if everyone would do a little, a few would not have to do a lot…. 🙂

For beginners, when it comes to cooking I usually use a energy efficient crock pot, toaster/convection oven or microwave.. Sometimes I get the urge to fry and with that I use a energy efficient, digital, electric hotplate.. 🙂

 

 

And there is the subject of paper… I love to read and I consider reading my relaxing part of the day… for practical reasons and to avoid cutting down a tree so I can read, I have my little Kindle Fire… I have been dealing with Amazon for over 15 years and have accumulated a library of over 2000 books, they are all downloaded on the Kindle… 🙂

To try to avoid using a landfill, I usually make quick notes on what is affectionately referred to as Boogie Boards (much like a chalkboard with no chalk)… 🙂

I will take what paper I can and turn into notepads, rather than purchase… 🙂

Used notepads and other paper goes through the shredder … 🙂

The shredded paper goes into the compost bin along with leaves I have not used for mulch, no smoke from burning leaves… 🙂

I use energy efficient light bulbs and turn on only when needed… 🙂

I use a energy efficient electric mower to reduce dependency on fossil fuel… 🙂

For a number of reasons I do not drive anymore, one being reducing fossil fuel and carbon emission.. And I need the exercise… I have food and supplies delivered… 🙂

Well, just a few things I do to hopefully help Mother Earth provide a bright future for all creatures and plants, large and small…. Again, I know not everyone can do what I do but perhaps one are able to make changes , even though they may appear to be small, that would be a important piece of the puzzle called helping Mother Earth… and here on the path, and everywhere, it would be a wonderful world indeed… 🙂

 

Well, I shall close for now, get on with the day, adventures to behold, folks to visit and perhaps share a thought or two…  but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

Until we meet again…

Never let anyone tear you down,
And never let anyone steal your shine and make you frown.
So will you sit in the shadows and let darkness win again?
Or will you rise up and make the light your friend?
                                                       (Hollianne Boucher)

    • A wonderful surprise and thank you for stopping by and glad you enjoyed your visit!!… it has been a struggle for the tree with the weather and all… 🙂

      Until we meet again..
      May the road rise to meet you
      May the wind be always at your back
      May the sun shine warm upon your face
      The rains fall soft upon your fields
      May green be the grass you walk on
      May blue be the skies above you
      May pure be the joys that surround you
      May true be the hearts that love you.

  1. Wow! I love the way you respect the planet. I use some of these methods, but I am always happy to add more. I WISH I lived close enough to work to walk and that I didn’t have to carry so many books and bags with me! Thanks for your suggestions.
