It's the little things

'Things We Need' 10x10" oil pastel;  Kathleen 

I look down at the curb to see all the cigarette butts that have been tossed down
on the ground
 destined for parts unknown.

Cigarette filters are made of 95% cellulose acetate, a plastic.
The balance is paper and rayon.
The thin plastic fibers look like plankton,
a food source,
to unsuspecting marine life.

Not fake news

We all love the owls.

Most owls live in forests
The Northern Spotted owl
lives in old growth forests

but we're cutting them all down.
