Stockyard Shopping

The world around us truly mirrors our lives and habits.

Saturday morning this past April, I found myself sitting in an empty parking lot of a local box store, waiting for the doors to open, for a shopping ritual to start. Abandoned shopping carts, puddles and small garbage piles formed a perfect image of a tired and silly consumerist world. Old rental trucks, half-broken down carts, flat tires show a tired and done cliché. All this perhaps lays bare the ridiculous nature of our consumerist ways.

Who knows?

I did need to buy propane for my grill.
