Thoughts for you/us to ponder


#459

Dein Weg ist ein langer Weg, du sieht in der Ferne dein Ziel, das zum Greifen nah für dich scheint, doch der Weg bleibt lang und es ist kein Ende in Sicht. So sehr du dich auch bemühst, wirst du das Ziel jemals erreichen? Wirst du dich irgendwann wieder auf den Weg machen? Es scheint, als würdest du ruhen. Dein Weg liegt im Dunkeln, von Stille umgeben. Kein Wimpernschlag erhellt deine Seele, keine Geste der Fröhlichkeit zeigt sich mehr, eher ummantelt eine Hülle dein Sein. Wo willst du nur hin? :pensive: :heart:

Your path is a long one, you see your destination in the distance, which seems within your reach, but the road remains long and there is no end in sight. As hard as you try, will you ever reach the destination? Will you ever set out again? It seems as if you are resting. Your path lies in darkness, surrounded by silence. No blink of an eye lights up your soul, no gesture of cheerfulness shows up anymore, rather a shell envelops your being. Where do you want to go? :pensive: :heart:

Save them bc you never know if in the near future you can make a journal/book with your ‘‘poems.’’ That’s what I call them beautiful poems coming from the heart. thanks for sharing them with us.

I stumbled over this video it’s a bit long, but I think it won’t hurt to see what actually happens to our waste of anything. Whether food, trash or whatever we throw out… it’s suffocating our planet. Pictures will give you food for the thought. :thinking:

I’m an avid recycling participant and donate clothing, shoes and furniture. I have more yard waste, paper/cardboard waste and some plastic bottles than trash. Still, I think I need to rethink shopping “strategies”, buying less is more. (I hate doing groceries trips)

One of the grocery stores have started a pilot program like bringing your own containers for filling your washing- and dish detergent, beer, soda and some dry food.

Upcycling is the way to go and having less as well… Checkout thrift stores, buy for less… seasonal things… (although because of demand, they have raised prices as well…)
Good luck everyone! :muscle:

True, but as the saying goes “work smarter not harder” the same goes for buying. We can incorporate some proven smarter way of living. This includes using natural straws, utensils, and plates, some of them edible. :wink::blush: I’ve watched YouTubers who travel, and these are only some of the things they encounter, and showcase. For example.





I ran into an article, where a Korean found a way to collect tossed out scraps, and make them into fashionable wear. At first when she started it was not easy, but now she’s well known, and has been featured in the main stream media.

@simi11

What do you use to eat this? Your hand, a fork, a spoon, a knife, chopsticks, or something else?

That’s what the video shows, upcycle from waste, but even the bioplastic produced from avocado pits will take up to 1 year to dissuade if thrown away or landing in ocean.

Those colores included? I’d think that’s a stretch :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Actually I wanted to answer you in detail, but no, I won’t do it :roll_eyes:
Since my English knowledge is really not my strong point :grimacing: :joy:

But I think his explanation is just great :slight_smile:


#476

Please do! Write it in detail in your mother tongue, even though google gets things wrong, at least you’re on the other end to agree, or disagree with what I understand. So! Please :blush: write in detail! :slightly_smiling_face:

Me too! So on point!

That is wonderful. Hard to live out. Hard to own. But wonderful.

I do it everyday, at the airport where I meet, and greet all kinds :grin: the trick is time limits, :wink: and never take anyone home :rofl:
