Do we own the things we buy, or do they own us?
Life is such a spending spree of stuff gathering. (Or as George Carlin says: "Mine is My Stuff, yours is Your Sh*t!"
Everything we own requires care. Cleaning, maintainance, a place to put it.
Own a farm? Ya gotta till it.
Own a dog? Ya gotta walk it, feed it, love it.
Own a collection? Ya gotta build shelves, pay rent or mortgage for the space, dust em, and whatever.
The things we own control what we do with our time, and thus dictate our very lives.
Own a computer?
Some things enhance our lives, while others load us down. Like the Janis Joplin tune says: "Freedom's just another word for nothin left to lose."
What stuff do you have that enhances your life?
