The Means and The Ends

Love forever love is free/ Let's turn forever you and me/ Windmill, windmill for the land/ Is everybody in?  (Gorillaz - "Windmill Song")

Love forever love is free/ Let's turn forever you and me/ Windmill, windmill for the land/ Is everybody in? (Gorillaz - "Windmill Song")

I went past this windmill on numerous occasions. On my way to school, on my way back from school, going for walks or on my morning jogs. However, only in this picture does the profoundness of its solitude really manage to impress me. Only now does this old lonely windmill drive her message home. People cross the bridge, coming and going places. Maybe they sometimes gaze at the clock by the bridge and wish they could go faster so they could arrive on time. They seldom don’t even take notice of its spinning arms, don’t bother looking. I know I often times didn’t. And yet it was there. The bridge and the windmill were always my „means” of getting to different places. Always the means, never the ends of my action. And that just makes me think of how many „lonely windmills” we may all be missing every day…
