Zen Monday: #88


Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about. There's no right or wrong. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean.

I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And unless I absolutely must say something I stay out of the comments box to avoid influencing the intellectual path of the discussion, because when I get in there everything goes downhill.

As I post each new Zen Monday photo I add
a label to last week's to identify it if necessary.

Betty the Bowerbird was awfully proud of the accoutrements she had gathered for her nest renovation.

Tall, half-caf, low-fat latte with a shot of irony, please.

!00% post-consumer litter.

Don't send in the clowns. Send in the mulchers to speed up the recycling cycle.

Vanilla latte grande, extra vanilla.

Nature vs man...you've created a strong metaphor for the irony.

With deep regret, Starbucks abandoned their plan for biodegradable recycled cups after a cup of hot coffee degraded all over the CEO's hands.

Dan was taking a stroll in a remote section of the park with with his morning latte when he dropped dead. Over time, his flesh decomposed and his bones were carried off by animals.

A little rough for TP in the woods.

Universal human habits won't be overcome by corporate greenwash. In Kerala, India, it's proliferating all along the roads now that a new generation of natives are being sold containerized food that until recently used to be tossed as fruit remnants from food carried in cloth bags. Plastic and tinsel in the harvesting fields, now, too.

At ScienceDaily.com I have read within the last month that there are several possibilities for bio-degradable plastics. Alas, today there is the following article:

Hormone-Mimics In Plastic Water Bottles Act As Functional Estrogens

I think I'm going to hollow out some gourds.

I've long thought someone should bio-engineer an orange skin to grow around other things. They make great shipping containers.

For single use (or mis-use) only...

While preparing for the annual summer soltice festival, the organizers decided to forgo the chamomile tea for something stronger. The $500 fine for littering was pure karma.

The new biodegradable cup tops are a great source of protein and fiber.

12 more Zen Monday's to go until we hit 100. What shall we do then? Try something else? I wonder. This one was more like "Irony Monday." I still love it. Printing flyer after flyer about helping the environment. Good idea.

And I've just got to say, Dianne, you crack me up. Your comment today is so you! Always got to have a dead body somewhere. (If you don't know why I say that, Google Dianne Emley.)
