Just Got Paid Today. . .

". . .Got me a pocket full of change."

It's a funny way of saying it, isn't it?

Stop and think for a moment. Forget about change-as-coin and think about change-as-concept.

A pocket full of change.

I was born my papa’s son,
When I hit the ground I was on the run.
I had one glad hand and the other behind.
You can have yours, just give me mine.
When the houd dog barkin’ in the black of the night,
Stick my hand in my pocket, everything’s all right.

Maybe money is power because money lets us modify things. Money lets us do things we'd otherwise have to give up. Money lets us alter circumstances and shift fates.

Money lets us change things.

I just got paid today,
Got me a pocket full of change.
Said, black sheep, black, do you got some wool?
Yes, I do, man, my bag is full.
It’s the root of evil and you know the rest
But it’s way ahead of what’s second best.

Perhaps no moment is more precious than the moment when we choose to put our money to use creating positive change.

Is there any more noble purpose in life? Perhaps not.

I just got paid today. . .
Got me a pocket full of change. . .
