What with all the holey shoe issues this week, this song kept popping into my head.
This week has me thinking about how my current poor AF circumstances are both enormous and small at the same time. I’m thinking about how fortunate I am but how unsettling that good fortune is knowing that so many people are in the same place and much worse.
Do you think I could crowdfund to become a philanthropist? People would get behind that,right? The Poor Philanthropist.
(I LOVE oxymorons, by the way)
I wouldn’t be a charitable philanthropist,though. Charity is this concept that assumes that the person giving is more elevated than the person receiving. I wouldn’t want to be about that. I’m right there with ya’ll.
(I think I just mangled another quote right there but the exact wording and who said it first is escaping me)
