Angled photos of a simple radial, a circle, a frame created by simple spokes and a wheel. Something so simple that was originally created thousands of years ago by some ancient people to war upon their neighbors – probably. It was an evolution in design, from stock wood, the simple wheel reigned across the continenents and created city states, which became kingdoms, and then mighty empires that spanned continents.
In some cases, empires lost due to the loss of a simple wheel, to paraphrase an old proverb, “….For want of a wheel the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a wheel.” Yea, you need to look up the original proverb called “For Want of a Nail”, it’s something that I look up every few years. It makes you think about the small things in life that need to be done. Without those small tasks, bigger tasks will be more difficult to complete.
