Elder of Coins

You did not expect to find him here. Here in the middle of things. You expected to be so much further along by now. You haven’t finished anything. How can it be he receives you with such patience. Without any urgency. Of all his riches he is richest in time. Time that cannot be hoarded or bought. Each person has their appointed lot. What magic is this? What treasury? His secret is not to do, but to be.
