if not for money

perhaps in jest, N asked me to work for him. he then made a strange comment,

“i’ll pay you in happiness”

i smiled at the offer and didn’t think much of it, until much later. what a proposition to make. to assure you could guarantee someone’s happiness, and that to, you could turn it into a form of payment.

what a risk. what a stance. what danger, and what vats of perhaps stupidity.

i may not be “happy” where i am, but i sure as hell am challenged daily and from where i stand, the passion, the dedication, the service, and the love–that all is payment plenty.
