Investment Talk

It’s all about investment, really
life, I mean – make a deposit,
withdraw – hope that in the end
the gain is worth more than
the cost – a healthy balance.

Have been running deficits,
too focused on serving others,
practicing the art of giveaways –
incentives to capture attention
(affection too, if I’m honest.)

I’m every marketer’s dream –
impulsive, in the moment,
disbelieve that time is money –
illness having dumped time
on my lap in massive dollops

I’d say energy equates with
income, begets funds – all
redundant now, overdrawn
as I am, no safety deposit
securing balanced health.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Yikes, yes …. watching the reserves dwindle down is soooo different than all those years upping them. But all those upping years I had a vision of old age as sitting in place, knitting maybe, rocking probably, not needing $ for such as RVs and new vistas … I knew so little back then! When it all runs out, I’ll learn to knit. (I’m already proficient at rocking …)
