When you gaze out your window—real or figurative– do you see the forest or the trees?
I am in front of my computer, I can see what’s out there, it’s not a very optimistic view. The rain is falling and my neighbor’s tree sans the leaves is standing still with occasional breeze moving its brown tiny branches to and fro, reminding me if I go out ,I better dress warm because nature is not providing the warmth.
Then there is the dull grey sky trying its best to provide some room for the sun to show itself, for us to hope, maybe just may be the sun will take over and the clouds will be pushed out.
Then there is that sound of some crows, who probably are wondering, we thought it’s spring why do we see snow, they are reminding in their own language to nature: “Did you forget the season, it’s Spring for God’s sake we want flowers, fruits and the pretty birds, why aren’t they here.”
To which nature replies: “It’s not my fault, ask your humans, they are the ones who are destroying everything on this planet, ask them when will they stop littering, drive cars, that are not environment friendly, need I say more, do not blame me blame the humans.”
The poor crows are sad and they are saying,” Humans please co-operate, so we can have decent weather!”
What do you love most about city/ town place where you live? What do you like the least about it? If you were mayor, what would be the most important problem you’d tackle? How would you tackle it?
I love my city, it’s not too large, we have everything we need right in the city. we have a good transportation system, it’s the Metro bus, the drivers are extremely helpful and always smile when you get on and off the bus, unlike in the city of Montreal, they are very unfriendly, once I wanted to know something, the driver showed his disgust by just pointing out.
I’m appalled at the bus drivers in Montreal, may be because our city bus drivers are always ready to help and they are never rude. Once a passenger missed his bus, he asked our driver what he’d do, the driver called that driver and asked him to wait at a certain stop. Where can you get this service, isn’t it unbelievable?
I’m pleased with almost everything the city provides, there is one problem of littering, the amount of empty coffee cups, McDonald’s wrappers, and other fast food cups found on city streets , people’s homes is unbelievable. My house faces the main street, unfortunately there is a bus stop in front of my house there is an unbelievable number of trash in my front garden.
If I was the mayor I’d try to make sure people stop littering the streets, homes and parking lots. I’d have to get help from volunteers on a rotating basis to enable them to spot the abusers, if the same people are caught too many times they’d be charged a hefty fine.
