First, a joke:

Have you ever wondered who helps little pumpkins cross the road? 

The crossing gourd, of course ;)


And now, a plea:

When was the last time you took a moment to consider what “wealth” means to you?

If you’re like me, maybe the meaning has evolved over time. My first understanding of what “wealth” means probably had something to do with having lots of money.

These days “wealth” has much more to do with what you truly own. 

Sure, you could be referring to the massive amount of money you “own” in the bank…

You might also be referring to the amount of time during the day that you can spend when/where/with whom/how you want.

If you have lots of money in the bank, but you must reckon with unwanted constraints on your money (or your time), would you use a word like “wealth” to describe your situation?


Please feel welcome to share your answer to the question with me by sending a brief note to if you’d like!


Anyway, thanks for your time and may the rest of your day be swell.
