Moody Monday: Gluttonous -

digital collage by Mick Mather
This is the theme at Moody Monday this week and, I suppose, I went with the obvious. Each of you will bring to this what you will, no matter what I might say, but, rest assured, the meaning here is absent of malice. Without diving head first into a pontifical screed, this image is offered by way of a directive: be fruitful and multiply. That said, my intent applies to the creative, inventive spirit of man, not to procreation alone. The concept of good stewardship in that regard doesn't have to equate to frugality, although that's fine for those seeking a simpler path. The time-tested concept of supply and demand is a wonderful thing for leveling the playing field of a free market. The sticky wicket in all of this is more likely rampant consumerism fueled by a humanistic need for instant gratification transmitted instantly & incessantly by a variety of media. The fact that studiously thought out campaigns appear to be everywhere, aimed at the impulsive personality and designed to make them buy, can be viewed in a few ways. Gluttonous is surely one, caveat emptor is another. I prefer imports, exports and free trade in an open economy. Let's go shopping!
