A Winter Muse

I see a deer. Suddenly. It runs from the forest edge on to the asphalt. The hooves slip. Just a bit. Have you ever seen a deer fall. Two jumps. And 20 feet of road: cleared.
She runs into the snow covered field on the other side. There are still stumped corn stalks staring through the flakes. The deer's breath make small clouds as she runs to the forest line.
Brown field. Patch of green. Harrowed rows.
Then gone.
No trace. No breath. No motion.
The still trees consumed that distant figure.

as promised. (days ago). and introduction to recycling from how stuff works

now ask yourself why would a hospital with thousands of employees and probably thousands of cans not recycle? seems unwise and wasteful.

most relevant graphic i could find. everybody loves pictures.

We Don't Recycle

just saw this at a major medical center. my first thought: why not?

my next thought: how much could they get for the thousands of cans trashed every day?

ill work out some estimates later.

lets stop there while you consider the effectiveness of these two options

why would i post a picture of a radiator?
