Sketch from an old black and white photo from who-knows-where,
looking East into the Laguna Hills, when they were pristine…
With more news of fracking pollution approved to dump in our oceans, I am homesick for better days. There was a time when we wanted to take care of and clean up; now the once pristine land is our sewer. I was taught not to relieve myself near any body of water — even hiking, we had to be 20 feet and on the down side from a creek. Now we allow fracking waste and every kind of chemical pollutant to be sprayed and dumped in our waters. I don’t think we need worry about the political differences of the candidates for President; both will continue to do an excellent job of polluting our HOME, and we will take all the creatures of the Earth with us, which is even more unfortunate.
