Ace of Coins

Every coin emerged from a cloud. Every coin you hold in your hand or find on a sidewalk. It came out of the earth, and the earth formed from a swirling cloud of gas and dust. The materials of money are all around you. In pebbles and metal cans. In the fibers of bedsheets. The same cotton and linen that are in the bills in your wallet. In the air and the water and the light that the cotton gathered into itself as it grew. Every beginning starts from what is here. What is under your feet? What is in your hands? Already you can see how it will change.
