So, walking along the Boardwalk today, picking up bits of plastic so I could dispose of them properly (plastic does not belong on beaches or in the bodies of the creatures in the water who might ingest them; is this not common knowledge??), I was reminded of this saying: “Mingle a little folly with your wisdom; a little nonsense now and then is pleasant.” (Horace (65 – 8 B.C.) Roman poet and satirist)
& I thought yes, wisdom is great, & so is “folly” (I can be very follish, just ask the people who know me)
& then I thought, could we please just mingle a little common sense with our folly?
p.s. do a search on turtles & plastic & I promise you will be very disturbed by what comes up.
