The Concrete Jungle, with make up on.
It is a war of commercial bill boards fighting for attention.
The hard steel and concrete edges covered with loudly coloured signs screaming look at me. A jumble of logos in a disordered mess of unrelated things, crying for business buy me, purchase here.
And they lie, saying no one asked to buy. Perhaps they would rather you put it on hire purchase as there is more profit in interest than paying cash. Bright coloured writing of every imaginable text on a contrasting background assault the eye.
The war continues beyond nine to five. The big neon guns hit you in the eyes after dark.
Get out of the war zone head for the hills neutral high ground. Looked on from a safe distance we see things sparklingly bright and clear.
We feel at peace in the forest surrounded by soft cool soothing green colours. It is a matter of what we need not what we want and are told we must have.
Our attitude of how we relate to our surroundings. We do not have to let the outside world affect our inner peace. Practicing meditation helps achieve this inner peace then we realize we do not need all they are selling.
They are selling and we are buying it, if you do not need it do not buy it, your time is more valuable.
