Stems of Pleasure

I was so thrilled to get this photo from New Hampshire the other day. I was up there last fall and walked the back country roads. Yes, we talked about the litter alongside the road in the gorgeous wooded countryside, complete with beavers, birds, deer and bear. Here’s what D.F. says about her roadside handywork,…

From Rome with Love – Piè di Marmo

TWO PROJECT UPDATES: 1) Roberta Polidori, the women who helped me get my bearings while I was recently north of Rome, shared with me her photos of the Piè di Marmo, without trash! I blogged about this beloved monument on May 30, 2017. I love her photos – beside the foot, a chair is placed…

Heart of Litter

Working in the trenches, or in this case, a beautiful stretch of Fort Lauderdale beach, is sometimes necessary for my work. This past 2nd Saturday of July’s monthly Beach Sweep with some of Broward County’s finest volunteers I co-created a public collaborative art project with volunteers that had been collecting all sorts of litter left…

Kudos to 3900 Galt Residents

Note from yesterday, July 5, 2017 ~ I thought this morning would be like so many others, picking up more trash, especially after the July 4 beach party. That was not to be the case. First thing I noticed was (pictured here) a grouping of large plastic bags of “stuff” that seemed to hug the…

American Mandala

It was nearly 10am, the sand was uncomfortably hot on my feet, as I went about picking up plastic and other debris from the beach at 3900 Galt . This presented a challenge in finding a shaded place to separate out the “trash” from the plastic for art projects. The bench area on the landing was…

Piè di Marmo (Marble Foot)

With hundreds of pictures taken in Rome, some beg to see the light of day. This photo of  is one of them. I could not get this image out of my mind. Maybe it was how I was ‘reintroduced’  to the ancient artifact on my recent trip to Rome. The first morning in Rome I worked on finding…

From Rome with Love

Pictured is a typical street trash receptacle. I like the idea it’s see through and not meant for heavy trash. Yesterday afternoon I was surveying the area around a street vendor selling little souvenirs near the Vatican. One had fallen onto the street. I picked it up and placed it back on his table. I…

The Beach, Italian Style: Castel Fusano

Since I live on the beach in Fort Lauderdale, I wanted to make sure I experienced the beach here in Italy. I took the train west to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Along the way I chatted with an Italian gent and he recommended I go to Castel Fusano. And so it was. I headed to the…

Piazza Farmese

I went to what I might consider a local farmer’s market today. At closing time, I saw the vendors leave behind bags, paper, plastic and wooden boxes, along with food “scraps” and other items they didn’t want anymore. As the wind kicked up much of the lightweight debris went flying toward the adjacent restaurants’ outside sitting…
