All I Want For Christmas is A Can Opener
Eating breakfast at catering this morning, it struck me - they cook a lot of fucking eggs every single day. Big whoop I know but wait, it is, because that's what sustains the corporate farms and cruelty to animals most people abhor these days. Our lifestyle is creating the problems that we protest. I read a snapple fact this morning that claims "the can opener was invented 48 years after the can". 48 years! That means it took that long before someone got fed up enough to invent a better way. With the growing population and increase in waste generated by our lifestyle of massive consumption we better not wait 48 years to wake up on some of these issues. I really don't want anything for Christmas this year except a book to learn more about my craft because it's time to start being part of to solution.
