What's the point of shopping for something you have no intent on buying?
For those of us with insatiable curiosity, everything is an opportunity to learn.
Even if I had the money, I would not buy one of these tower gardens that facilitate urban farming.
But I'm glad I know about them.
I'm glad I know I don't want one for myself.
I'm glad I know I'm not missing out on anything. They're just not for me.
Most of all, I'm glad I know what the grown roots look like on the inside.
Sometimes it's nice to wander around a place without the intent to purchase.
The world is your museum.
Sniff the flowers, admire the beauty, try on the clothes.
If you're dying for it, maybe you can come back.
Maybe things will get better.
My life isn't over yet.
Maybe I can buy things again one day. Maybe I can travel places again one day. Maybe I can splurge on experiences again one day.
I want to be prepared for one day. I'm always planning for someday.
