Just Wondering

In one thousand years....

What will the future archeologists of 3012 discover as they dig through the debris of the 20th and 21st centuries? What kind of historical artifacts will they find? Will there be books kept safe and savored by people in the far distant future? What style of architecture will be prevalent? Which structures from our diverse world today will still be standing in 3012?

Will there be vibrant forests? And pristine clean lakes and deep blue oceans?

Or will our legacy to future generations be piles of discarded plastic and twisted metal? Remnants of a technology boon gone terribly wrong?

Savor our earth.

Hi Robin,
Thanks for reading. I was in an odd mood when I wrote and posted this blog. ;]

The first pic is a road in Dresden, Maine.
