Recycled Beauty

The photo below is of one block, out of a pillar of blocks, made entirely of recycled waste. You can see sunglasses, pockets knives, car keys, utensils, toys, etc in these blocks. It's truly a beautiful piece of art.

Taking something that is old, broken, used up, discarded and turning it into something beautiful;
It’s an inspiring life message…
on a level so much deeper then recycling.
on a level a bit more personal then environmental responsibility.
I’m getting older.
My heart may be broken.
My energy, patience, forgiveness, and optimism may feel used up.
And I may have been entirely discarded.
But there’s hope.
As long as my heart is still beating; there’s hope.
I can turn this mess of me into something beautiful.

  1. It's a beautiful sort of 'Where's Waldo'... I love looking for recognizable materials/things in the block!

    Thanks for sharing the picture & the words of wisdom!!
