orange peel“I march to the kitchen, gather those tiny orange peelings and deposit them in compost bin, making a down payment on the earthen gold that I will someday reap. Grabbing the garden hose, I anoint the holy ground with gusto. As I replace the lid, I speak a word of gratitude for all the recyclers of the world, from the masters of decomposition, to the ingenious humans who make useful things from our discards. I honor the City planners and engineers working to find ways to divert our trash from the landfills. I give thanks to Earth for receiving back all that I return to her, in whatever shape it arrives. And I bless every one of us endeavoring to find more joy in less stuff.”
