The Power of Nature

This week, I created a layout with a photo from our trip to Barranquitas, Puerto Rico on February 2010. The starting point was prompt from Log Your Memory Weekly Challenge #14. Here are some of the prompt questions: Do you have a "green thumb"?, What role does recycling or other ecological practices play in your life?, Are you concerned about the future of the planet?.

Journaling: Every time we visit the densely forested mountains from Puerto Rico, I feel a renewal. I get inspired to meet my citizen responsibilities to protect the earth. I do not feel very proud of starting recycling on 2009. I do not feel that as a citizen, I am doing sufficient to preserve this island beauty. The high consumerism, the low re-use of items does not help, either. I am aware that habit's changes are not easy, and takes time. I really hope, that my children and grandchildren will be able to view this beauty landscape, as of today, and not only on photographs. For them, I feel committed to change my consumer's habits, to meet my citizen's duties.
