the 3 r's

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.
Paulo Coelho (24 august 1947) writer

wall wednesday continues...

another different sort of wall post. thanks to the quote i used last week by lefebyre i started thinking about repurposed buildings around me. today's photo is one of the many re-purposed buildings around cleveland.

today the former live poultry market which operated next to cleveland's historic west side market now houses the city's newest microbrewery and gathering spot, the market garden brewery. what i really love about this re-used building is how the building's former life is still visible on the walls!

folksinger jack johnson & friends performing the catching and the completely ecologically correct song the 3 r's at the 2008 kokua music festival - by the way this was the year featured in the documentary kokua 2008: 5 years of change.

That's quite a group of musicians he assembled for this. Fun song.

I love the Coelho quote....and it's my mantra...see each day differently. I try anyway.
I looked for the documentary on Netflix but they didn't have it. Is this just out in theater recently? I'd really like to see it.
Good music today....catchy tune. Inceeeeeption!! Oh yeah...Jack's three R's have totally incepted me.
Quick someone play another music video.....!!!!
Thanks for the fun post. Hope you're having a swell Tuesday.

I find the building fascinating, mouse! Not just the one featured, but the windows in the red building in the background. You help open my eyes to what is around me.

A chicken factory or a brewery - no contest.

Great song choce. I used it on my blog too when I wrote about our recycling project. I love Jack because of his association with Curious George. And you know how I adore that monkey!

i like the nice upright garden they've got going as well. Looks like a nice place to sit out and enjoy a beer.

Its Much Better To "Recycle" Buildings.I find it rather depressing when we slash/burn then rebuild brand spanking new.Much Better to preserve&find the memory within the old ,Me'thinks.
