Definition of being rich.

Sometimes, I am rich. Not always, but I was rich yesterday. I had more of what I wanted than I actually needed — my sole constraint being the 24/7 limit of available time shared by all. I had more storage capacity in the camera and props than I could photograph in a day, more ammunition than I could shoot in the range time I have, more perfectly ripe watermelon and fancy chocolate than I could eat, more good friends than I could see all at once or in turn. With my time being the sole scarce resource, I’d say that being rich was exactly my condition. And that’s a very nice feeling.

    I agree, that’s a very accurate assessment of what it is to be rich, and I wish I had more days like that.

    Amen! This is exactly how I feel about life in general. The only thing I never have enough of is time. 🙂

    Damn. The wife and I are out of .38 special ammo. We’re now lower middle class! I’ve got plenty of .223, but I count that as more like my 401k. More of a long term investment than day to day spending.
