a watch in every color?

Today I rediscovered a watch that I really love but that I have not worn for awhile. It is well-made and sort of expensive. My first thought after putting it on was that I should check online to see if it comes in brown (so that I can buy that one too). The fact is, it’s really not such a strange thought for me to have, but today I was totally taken aback by it… Have I been so indoctrinated by consumerism that I can’t even enjoy something without immediately wondering how to get more of it? Um, yes.

What a great insight this new mindset of simplicity has led me to understand.

Now when I see my watch, I appreciate its beauty. Nothing else. I just like it.
