Days of Yore: Laguna Beach

Sketch from an old black and white photo from who-knows-where,
looking East into the Laguna Hills, when they were pristine…

w16-9-22-pentalic-laguna-beach-days-of-yore-08With 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.

    We pollute in order to extract fuel with which we will pollute more.
