Money isn't the driver.
Money almost annoys you. You've come to terms with the fact that money isn't even the measuring stick you were told it was.
Money turns out to be something the human condition glorified as necessary paper in a desperate world saturated with mixed up priorities.
This driver goes well beyond money.
This driver is the Art.
It's the grand vision to bring a smile to someone's face, to aid a suffering heart, to tell someone they matter, to bring unexpected laughter to a troubled soul ... you know the truth about this driver. This driver is timeless. It's the immortal spark that endlessly ignites creativity and genius through multiple generations.
You have been gifted a universal secret, and you comprehend the ultimate meaning of purpose:
"When this body has sung it's last glorious song, written it's last sonnet, or penned it's final poem, you know without a doubt that just like love, the artist leaves the body and lives on"The art is what's remembered.
The art is what matters.
The art, like the artist lives on.

Something that sets the whole world on its ear
I wanna do something better
With the time I've been given
And I wanna try To touch a few hearts in this life
Leave nothing less Than something that says "I was here"
