Tomorrow is trash day, which means today's the day I get it ready to put out (so I'm not doing it at 5am tomorrow!). There's more recycling than trash, which I suppose is a good thing, but it's scary how much stuff there is to dispose of every week--newspapers (yes, this is a family that still reads real newsprint!), plastic, glass, excess packaging. At this time of year it strikes me as excessive, and we haven't even hit Christmas yet...then a walk down the street on trash day really makes me realise how MUCH we have, when so many have so little. We have a couple of regular trash trawlers in the neighbourhood, whose income is augmented by my discards. When did I lose the sense of 'enough'?
