What is something worth?
Money is such a strange thing.
It’s this made up idea. This agreement we all have to represent value in an abstract way. Which is even weirder now that we hand that value over to banks as a series of 000000’s and 111111’s.
It is ‘make believe’, on one level, but very real on another.
Particularly if you don't have any of this fantasy to pay for things like food and shelter.
Getting caught up in money is far too easy. Dreaming about all the things money could do. Wishing I had more. Hungering after this virtual nothingness…
But it doesn’t represent what’s really important. (Particularly after I have enough to pay my bills and eat and all that).
People are what matter.
Relationships, connection and community.
Money is important, but only so important.
The people in my life are important. Really important.
