Recycling seems like it should come second nature. But there’s definitely more to it than washing out your milk cartons and separating your cardboard.
On days like today - when the rain is relentless and all I'd rather do is curl up with a book or sit at the keyboard and write - is when I produce my best work. There's something whimsical about the rain which brings out creativity. Whether anyone else has this motivation from the weather - specifically rain - I don't know. I'm sure I'm not the first and I'm sure I won't be the last. What particularly struck me about today as a rainy day was that I had a revelation.
Warning: I'm about to get super preachy and super righteous about some stuff that means a lot to me. I do try to tell people that it should matter to them, and you, too. Because after all, we all live on the same planet, even if we can't see all of it all the time.
