CHANGE

If things are hard
it’s temporary.
If things get easier
also temporary.

Mama Madwoman

She drags you kicking and screaming
to the root of your separateness
until you are forced to expand
the conditions upon which
you allow yourself to be loved.

Mia Hug + How 2 Erasure Poem

Erasure poetry is super-easy and really fun to do! I find it helps when I have writer’s block because the words are already there, I just need to make them something new.

In the Middle of a  Hug

by Cathy Casper
erased by Arisetotrash

just now a halo hugs the moon,
and the earth hugs the moon to her side
the mountains hug the mesas holding them close to the river
while the mesa hugs the valley close about the town
and the deer who can’t hug, touch muzzles
chickadees hug plum tree
branches between their tiny feet
as you will hug me when I open the door
of all the ways to hold close, I treasure this four-armed hug
but when you go, and hugs turn into waves, we need not feel alone
the moon
k [.]nows [T]that the Earth will hold her forever in their turning
so, hold this
aware [,] ness in your heart
we are
always in the middle of a hug

This is what In the Middle of a Hug became after I remove what I erased. For my youngest cousin:

Mia

Just a hug, and the earth hugs her back.
That Earth forever aware,
always in the middle of a hug.

Notepad DIY – 99% Recycled, 100% EASY

So you discovered this because you wanted to know what Agenda Resurrected is

… or maybe you didn’t.

What you REALLY WANT must be to learn how to make cheap, easy and efficient notepads that give paper an extra life before being sent to a recycling centre.

First thing’s first: Do you have a bunch of scrap paper?

(click the pics if you need to see a description of the steps)

Note:  I thought I’d try something new by using the Gallery function.
If you find it difficult/annoying/strange to read, let me know in the comments!
~~ I’m also curious to hear what you had for breakfast.

GO GREEN #13

Use a bucket of soapy water to wash your car — only use the hose for rinsing!

Only 1% of our planet’s water is fresh, liquid, and usable; 97% is saltwater; 2% is frozen in glaciers and polar icecaps (as of 2012)

GO GREEN #31

Go online and learn more about endangered species. Research why the organism is endangered and how you can help.

#32 is very similar.  I pulled up some photos of the endangered species I was drawn to.

Use this to get you started: IUCN Redlist  & WWF Endangered Species Directory
