'Perfectly good' Adera Street home draws protest from neighbours who say it will be demolished
I find it rather odd, to destroy what appears to be an incredibly beautiful home...I get that "it's mine, it's my money, I own this property, I can do what I want with it" theory...I live it, basically...but if you then consider what a waste it is, how much space is it going to take in a landfill, yada, yada, yada,...and no I do not consider myself a tree hugger...but I do try to look at the big picture of anything....sometimes ...it takes me a minute longer than some..: )..but I like to try and see around to the other side of it, come full circle if you will. This I just didn't get until I thought...
We really are such a throw away society, and the landfills are filling, rather it is from foreign or domestic...really matters not, does it, or does it? For me, I see it as we have stopped looking for the beauty and the value in what is here, so throw it away, or tear it down, get the newest, biggest, build it bigger! And THAT is to me a major flaw in us...as a generation, society, humanity???
So for me, I will look upon the options, objects and people in my life, and find their beauty and purpose and value... and be thankful and appreciative for the beauty and purpose they bring to me. No throw aways', some are meant to pass through, and that's ok too. There is value and beauty in them as well. Neither do I want to fill a landfill on earth, in my heart, or in my mind. So now, looking for a home as we move towards Tennessee, I am strengthened in my perspective on our goals, will stand firm in them and while packing...be very discerning. : P
I am off my soap box, It is sad that this home could be torn down, all of its beauty demolished, just to build something bigger...its such a waste.
