Prince and the true currency

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life

Electric word life
It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else
The after world…

Prince died today,at the age of 57. His music has been part of my life since I was a kid. When Doves Cry is still one of the sexiest songs I’ve ever heard, and I even got married in 1999 so I could party like it was (1999).

What is a money/finance blogger doing writing about a musician? Here’s the thing. Money is important, but time is the true currency. None of us knows how much we have left, so we have to make every minute count.

If you don’t have money, or at least knowledge about your money, you don’t have the luxury of choosing what to do with your time. You have to give it away to get what you need (food, shelter, etc.).

I had the pleasure of seeing Prince in concert in 2011. He certainly was dedicated to his music. May we all be so lucky as to have the chance to pursue our passion instead of chasing money to pay the bills.
