Change inspires excitement. Especially when one was hoping for a change.

Change is so damn good when bad things look like they might finally loosen their grip and give way like some damn dam that a patient river never did want to put up with.

But not all changes require being sought or hard won. Some change happens every day, whether it is wanted or not.

I lose a dollar and gain some coins and a coffee in return. I grow a little older. The clock keeps moving.

Soon pennies will become obsolete. Even spare change will change.

I give cashiers exact change, but sadly. Pennies are pretty. Only pennies have the bold, good sense to be copper when all the other coins are a plain, utilitarian gray.


There is no longer such a thing as penny candy: a whole bag full of candy that can be bought with one shiny, happy orange coin.


Change is a force. Whether hard-won, wanted, or unwanted, it comes. From time, or work, or money, or sweat, or prayer, or hope, it comes. And change never seems to grow tired.

May the change be with you.

One Response to “Change”

  1. I think there is no life without change. By its nature life produces change. Embrace change, embrace life! Keep on writing and changing the world 🙂
