While I was working today, my beloved sent me a photo of my big dawg snoozing while leaning into their lap. A lovely a photo that warmed my heart, thinking about my dawg relaxing with me at times. These experiences build on connection and don’t need much money.
My boss told me a little later how he enjoyed being able to listen to his kids play (among many others) at the nearby school – from his kitchen window. He works incredibly hard and puts a lot back into his community, but he isn’t financially well off in the way he could be if worked for a big corporation in London – a role he’d have no problem securing.
Both of us are nonetheless rich, in the sense of being able to enjoy simple pleasures with our loved ones and recognising we’re lucky to be able to.
