I just wrote myself a cheque for $1 million dollars. I just can’t cash it! I feel so much better now knowing that I am well off and I have money on my fridge door
So here is my Thanksgiving gift to you. I’m going to give you a million dollars or at least I’m going to give you the dream of what you might do with a million dollars. You can do whatever your heart desires with that million. Many would take off on a trip around the world, quit their job, start their own business or some kind of life changing event. They would start their quest for a meaningful life by changing the one they have. Their present life just ain’t their heart’s desire. I always said’retirement assumes you’d rather be doing something else.” Go ahead tell me what you are going to do with this new found gift.
Here’s how boring I am. I would do exactly what I’m doing.. I’d make pots! Perhaps Jack and I would sell The Cactus Lounge and we would get some more property in the woods and build a bigger studio with a full blown showroom. I’d buy a nice piece of property for a great studio and hope a house came along with it. I spend a lot of time in the studio so that is my real priority. I’d like a train kiln again so that would pretty well set me up for life. Oh we’d go on a holiday every year to the places in my "to go" bucket.
I’d have a pile of money left over since my needs are simple and Jack just needs a good view to stare out. I’d probably just burn up the rest of the money making pots till it’s time for me to go trolling for ground trout.
