Earth is not just a planet. It is our home and our one and ONLY home in the universe. Therefore we should take good care of it because this is the only home we have. I don’t care if you have the largest mansion or if you are the richest man in the world. If you do not respect nature then I suggest that you find another planet to pollute!
The pictures below were taken on the 2nd day of Easter. Hubby, Zorro and I went to Kaland Austerheim to celebrate Easter. We were fortunate enough for the sunny weather during that weekend. A very good friend of mine visited too, so we had a wonderful Lenten season this year.
Then there came the mood breaker. When we were walking along the shore we found some plastic trash! There’s the plastic grocery bag, a plastic bottle, small hard plastic bits which I could not tell what and smaller plastic bags! Instead of just sitting and enjoying the view, I picked up the trash because I cannot take it and never would I let these wastes get back to the sea. It is just painful for me to imagine that animals can die because of these plastics that we have found.
Anyway, have a nice day and happy Earth day everyone!
Our cat at home has been following me wherever I go. I noticed that she’s naggy today. Since I have day off today, I’m happy to play with her. She loves to play fetch with her favorite toy, earplugs. Then I got tired so I took a break and sat on the couch when she suddenly jumped to the table and stared at me for like 2 minutes. She looked like she was examining me (Probably wondering when I’m gonna toss her toy again.). So I tossed the earplug again, but this time she won’t go after it. She just remained on the table. Just as I started going back to my room, she followed me again but I just ignored her. I heard scratches from the door and because of that I yelled at her. I think she took the hint because she stopped scratching.
I felt bad because I yelled at her but I still remained in my room because I was busy doing some paper works. However she came back to my door which is unusual because she only do it once in a while and easily gives up. This time it’s different.
I let her in after a minute of whining. I talked to her in a very possible human way (I asked her what’s the matter with her). She stared at me, purred and she gave me a serious stare. Her eyes were talking to me. I could see it and I could feel her thoughts.
Then I started to wipe off the tears…
And that’s when I realized that there’s nothing wrong with Aki (the cat) today. It was me. I was lonely today and the cat knew before I did because I was busy overthinking about things around me.
For me a home is not necessarily the place where you’re born. Nor the place where you grew up to. But it’s a place that we feel safe and secured. A place that you can’t resist despite your hectic schedule and the distance. Home is where your family and the people who you really care about lives. Home is where your heart is.
For yesterday’s Photo 101 the theme is about home. This photo was taken back in 2010 in Sauda, located at a country side outside Stavanger Norway.
