Our Prize!

Wound up being a completely intangible one.

Yeah, we won the five gold(en) collectible coins. They cannot be spent anywhere, but they are shiny and embossed with John Quincy Adams.

But what we won was a few hours of hopes and dreams. A few hours of thinking anything could and may happen. A few hours of thinking, it's all possible.

I wonder what sort of world it would be if everyone took more than a few hours, but maybe every moment believing anything could happen. The world is filled with possibility. When was the last time you believed in something?


  1. Not sure you actually won a few hours of believing you may win. What you did win was a couple hours where your kids were excited and sharing that excitement with you. That in itself maybe more valuable then winning a car. Not only were they sharing that excitement, dreams and hope with you but during that time they probably didn't think of you once as a dork!

  2. If I had to win 5 gold coins embossed with a Prez (nonnegotiable), I'd want it to be Millard Fillmore.

    I would give one to each magazine solicitor who comes to the door, so that in 3 or 4 summers, I'd be down to my last one, which I would frame and hang on the wall with its own presentation light.

    I might drive down to Moravia this weekend just to pay homage to the dude.


Thank you for joining the conversation! Your input is always valued.
