time to step it up a notch...or ten
i think for the most part the environment that humans create positively shapes our lives. we wouldn't have walking paths around lakes, cabins to enjoy a mini vacation, valuable time to visit friends and family who live far away. there are many things that humans create that we need to stay healthy too. we need doctors and necesssary medications and surgery tools and machines used in severe emergencies. just think what life would be like without stop lights or bridges or parking ramps. sure we would get by or adapt but i think it is beneficial in more ways than not to have these amentities. thank goodness we are able to have showers and toilets too. im not even going to get in depth about that topic.
something else i was thinking about was the north shore in duluth minnesota. for those of you who are lucky enough to have seen this place in real life, rememebr it forever. the north shore is somewhere you can live among nature to the largest extent compared to anywhere else. something interesting that i was thinking about though, was even though it is pure nature, there is still a human touch to it everywhere. the trails have to be maintained and kept up to keep a clear and safe path. there is a committee of people who groom the walking trails and clear brush. humans mark the landscape no matter if you are developing a community of houses or walk the nature trails in duluth minnesota. hmmm....
i found this picture on my computer and thought it was so sweet. my sister and i were going out to the car one morning after a fresh snow. her fiance wrote on her windsheild earlier so she would be surprised when she come out to go to work. so cute. (some of you probably thinking 'cheezy' but i thought it was cute) this is an example of how humans can make a positive change on our environment. it meant so much to her too :)
i know a lot of people relly like valley fair but i was thinking about what is going to happen to all the machinery, materials and garbage when that place is no longer able to run. someday that amusement park will no longer be in business and what are they going to do with all the rides? are they going to leave them there all deserted? it is so much waste it makes me sick. this is a great example in my opinion that humans and technology have made a negetive impact on our surrroundings.
so much waste. are they going to be able to reuse any of this stuff?
