    that reflects much of current western civilization and for me it is sad.  It does take leisure and reflection
    to be creative and to look at problems and find solutions.  Our need for more "stuff" created by advertising
    is an illusory vicious cycle that robs us of real joy and satisfaction and connecting to the land that sustains us.
    Read "Ishmael" by Daniel Quinn.
