The treadmill keeps on turning powered by desire.
The rich drink champagne as man chases his dreams, be it the “Origin of the World”,
painted by the French artist Gustave Courbet in 1866,
the perfect home,riches, fancy cars, food, running till his life blood is drained,
becoming the fodder for the next fool.
The wheel of fortune rolls on.
We can make all our lives richer by stewarding the earth protecting life
or be attached by umbilical cord to a life of mindless consumption.

Those who think they are in charge are out of control of themselves, hence their need to control everything.
