Changing the Landscape: One Bag At a Time

March 12, 2012: One Bag At a Time

March 12, 2012 7:00 p.m.  Weather 5 degrees and thick cloud to the west.  A wind…and a chill in the air.  Max absolutely stinks at the moment!  I think they opened up some drains on the Flat’s today.  He is in desperate need of a grooming.  YUCK!  It was nippy to be picking litter up as the sun was going down.  But, looking west, the sky made up for that pretty quick.  It was a glorious evening and I was glad for the decision to head out.  When I went to the bin, in order to deposit my bag, I was a wee bit disappointed that I didn’t find a stash of large bags to use, after leaving my note yesterday.  This just means that I will continue to provide my own. During family dinner last night, my daughter said that in the spring, the City and volunteers are sent out to clean up this mess.  Hmmm…really?  I guess that would make me a volunteer.

I received a note from bob at

Hi Kathleen,
Bob Keelaghan of AMGC here.
I’d say picking up trash is something we can get behind. Good on ya! So, yeah, you have our permission. But…
and then he went on to explain the conditions etc. for incorporating bits of their amazing music into my 20-60 second films.  He was so awesome to get back to me…and their music is so remarkable!  I hope that my readers will give them a listen!
