If Money were No Object.

We teach the next generation to do as we do: to do things we don’t like doing in order to go on doing what we don’t like doing.


Rather, become a master of

More Alan Watts.

    Ahhhhhhh, good ol' Mr. Watts.

    I just asked myself this question about 20 minutes ago "marshing" (I am aware that marshing is not a word) through Esty looking at jewelry, and thought about which one thing would I buy if money was no object. Ironically I picked a pair of "teacher" earrings priced at $10. They'll be here in a few days. 🙂

    Thank God I found my future profession; money has not a damn thing to do with it and I'm proud of it, because those kids saved my life.
