Daily Prompt: Think Global, Act Local

When I saw the challenge of today I immediately knew what to write about: Being a vegetarian.
This is absolutely a global issue, because the meat production and cosumtion is one of the reasons to the global warming.

I’ve been vegetarian since last summer, and I can truthfully say that it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. After having a quite long period when I’d been feeling depressed and unhappy I suddenly started feeling so much better. Because of the healthy way of eating my body seemed to feel better, and when your body feels good the mind often comes along.

Something else that’s good about choosing a veg lifestyle is that you do good for the environment. Creating a sausage made out of meat requires about 10 times the energy needed for creating a soy sausage.

But I’m not gonna keep nagging about all the positive things I’ve experienced since becoming veg, I guess you’ve all heard it several times already. But I still think it’s an important issue, which I also love talking about.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique

Image

One morning this fall I woke up, got dressed and had my breakfast as usual. When standing in the kitchen to wash off my plate I looked out through the window and saw that our lawn was all covered with cobweb. That night had been cold and wet, so everywhere you could see drops of ice hanging on the spider silk. The whole spectacle was then improved by the morning sun, making the drops of ice shine in every thinkable colour.
Catching the beauty of it was an impossible task.

Our entire lawn was covered with this, but not anywhere could you possibly find two cobwebs looking exactly the same, that’s beauty of nature.

Design

I have finally found a design that I like. Hopefully I’ll stick to this for a while, been changing a lot since I started out.
But of course I open for criticism, do you have any opinions or tips about how I could make it look better? You’re free to tell, I won’t judge.
