let’s talk trash

 

Ideas and actions to save the sea from plastics: I reclycle my laundry detergent packages into vases for flowers and aromatic herbs for my kitchen and my friends kitchens.

This idea impacts (moustly) diddly-point-squat, but I  like to think of it as my drop of water on this fire that is our planet sea solution by plastics packages

Home plastic packages are not so hard to recycle;
It’s fun to reinvent, reshaping and coloring old laundry detergent packages , one package at a time,  and give then new purpose.

I’m so tired of laundry detergent packages! I’m have this dream of creating a corporation to  deliver laundry (and other) detergents by tube installed in every home , as if laundry and, all other detergent were like natural gas and, simultaneously, invite every plastics manufacturer to include a drawing suggesting its future …

I’m just like the bird that trys to put out a fire with drops of water … this habit makes me feel that i’m doing my part …
For those of you who don”t know the story:

Once upon a time there was an elephant and a bird and they lived in a forest
One day there was a big fire; The story tells that the desperate animals began to flee from the fire that threatened them from all sides … but a bird and an elephant, and some other animals  did not flee; they stayed and tried  to out to put out the fire each in its own way: the elephant tried to help out pouring jets water with his great trunk and the bird pouring drops of water with his little beak.
At a time, when they met together on the water’s edge and the elephant asked the bird: 
 -‘ little bird, what difference do you think you’re making ? do you think those little drops of water that you carry in your beak make a difference on putting out this big fire ? 
The bird replied:

– ‘my beak compared to your trunk is indeed insignificant, but I am doing my part, and if we all do our part …’

ponzo illusion

The Ponzo illusion is a geometrical-optical illusion that was first demonstrated by the Italian psychologist Mario Ponzo

 He suggested that the human mind judges an object’s size based on its background.

The Ponzo illusion is one possible explanation of the Moon illusion, with objects appearing “far away” (because they are “on” the horizon) appearing bigger than objects “overhead”…

o espelho mágico

‘Majestade’ – disse Senkua – ‘não desvieis o vosso rosto. Só viste o principio e o fim da vossa vida. Continuai a olhar para o espelho e vereis tudo o que existe e poderá existir. E quando tiverdes alcançado o máximo enlevo, o próprio espelho mostrar-vos-á até mesmo, coisas que não podem existir’

love

“Do nosso amor nascerão outras vidas. Em nosso amor outros matarão a sede. Virá talvez um dia em que um homem e uma mulher, iguais a nós, tocarão este amor, que ainda terá força para queimar as mão que o toquem. Quem fomos? Que Importa? Tocarão este fogo.

(…) e o fogo, minha doçura, dirá teu simples nome e o meu, o nome que apenas tu soubeste porque apenas tu, sobre a terra, sabes quem sou, e porque ninguém me conheceu como uma, como uma só das tuas mãos, porque ninguém soube como, nem quando meu coração esteve ardendo somente teus grandes olhos (…) os meus pés estão firmes sobre a terra, a minha mão escreve esta carta no caminho e no meio da vida estarei sempre ao lado do amigo, em frente do inimigo, com o teu nome na boca e um beijo que jamais se separou da tua. “

Carta no Caminho, Pablo Neruda, Versos do Capitão
