I just heard this story on NPR’s program “All Things Considered.”
It’s about Kathy Frederick, a woman who has spent 2 years blogging about a plastic bag stuck in a tree outside her window. The bag’s name is Windy and Frederick even throws birthday parties for her.
I think Frederick’s blog is a cute, lighthearted way to create a dialogue about an otherwise gloomy topic. I’m certainly a fan of Windy the plastic bag.
You can stay updated on Windy’s life at Frederick’s blog, The Junk Drawer.
