I don't believe that earning money is the entire goal in life. I'm sort of a crunchy hippie with a large portion of community builder. I have been a struggling single mother for many years and I prefer trading for some of our needs. It is such an amazing thing to trade art for food, photos for the talent and services of other people. I've been an artist for most of my life and it truly makes me happy to produce something that induces others to feel.
