For the life of me I cannot remember where I found this image. The obvious message that the housing industry consumes primary materials such as trees and shits out houses to the detriment of the environment is forcefully made nonetheless.

I had a bad day at work today. Nothing happened. That’s the point , nothing ever happens that is interesting or stimulating. It’s the same old ..shit. Construction related too. Sorry to burden you dear reader.

  1. It’s a great image. And doesn’t Man look like a vile creature?!
    The same old shit situation is a tough one I know (from past experience)… You just have to put all your love and effort into the things you do for pleasure, and it seems from reading this blog that you have lots of those – which is more than can be said for some…

    • Consumption is the prevailing rampant condition of the age. Little green men from outer space would take one look at our situation and shake their multitudinous heads in puzzlement..We are chewing up resources at such a completely crazy rate that I wonder if my daughter will have access to clean water, clean air and food…let alone a smart phone in her middle/old age. The trouble is almost non of us is clear eyed enough to see this coming at us.

      I’m sorry for the maudlin outburst. I am extraordinarily lucky in so many ways as is obvious to the world at large.One of my many failings is to long for things I do n’t really want or need.Refer back to the previous paragraph for further clarification.

      And thank you for dropping by.

      • Everyone’s allowed a maudlin moment now and then! These are grave issues which could (and do) upset me v deeply if I let them. I’ve come to the conclusion that all I can do is that which is within my power (even if not that much in the scheme of things, it’s better than nothing) but that I just have to find a way to let go of that which is not within my power. If that makes sense.
        At least there is hope when there are parents like you around who can pass their values on to the next generation…
