Beauty amid the trash.

Sitting on the exit ramp, waiting on the light to change, I glanced to my left.


Immediately I started to rant over how disgusting people are. How smokers who obviously smoke in their cars should keep THEIR cigarettes in THEIR car. I wondered how people could be so callous to just throw trash on the side of the road and expect that someone else would clean it up. Gross.

I was heated.

Then I looked a little bit further out...


Looking past all the discarded cigarettes and trash I saw the first signs of Spring. The best. sight. ever.


As the light changed so did my mood and I couldn't help but smile.



**I'm still thoroughly disgusted by the trash left on the side of the road. For the love of Christ do not throw your cigarette butts or trash on the side of the road. Litter bugs should be squashed.

People are so gross. I don't understand why anyone would think that the world is their trashcan. I was at a stoplight recently and this guy threw his fast food hamburger out of his car window. Which would not be a big deal - animals will eat it...it will decompose. But then. He threw out the wrapper. And then packets of katsup. And to top it all off. The cup, lid, and straw.

I might have said an expletive. Or two. Or twelve.

It totally angers me when people throw their trash on the side of the road. Are you not going to be by a garbage at any point during the day? Do you not have an ashtray in your car? GRRRR.

Love the signs of spring though!
