Yesterday I did a very flippant post about a bath that measures how much water you are using. I received this comment from an Anonymous person in Africa.
I am an african and I adore your blog. Your taste is exquisite and you seem to have such an inquisitive mind.... Where I live the average person has a bath with one bucket of water and relaxing rarely comes into the equation. I understand that the issues of climate change are a drag and a bore for a lot of people in the west but please remember those who struggle daily for very little so that others can have a lot...Your blog spreads so much beauty and I hope it will continue to do so.
I felt so ashamed when I read this. It only goes to prove that we in the West take so much for granted and I apologise profusely to this person. I could try and talk my way out of this but I could not do so with a clear conscience.
