An early morning bon mot

Well, I just kicked off the week over on Round-The-World Barstool Blues with a favourite quip from Tom Waits; so, for a little symmetry, I'll use a line of his over here on Froogville too (rather more depth and seriousness in this one, though). This speaks especially to my nomadic soul - an always useful reminder to eschew materialism and cultivate instead the Buddhist virtue of 'non-attachment'. (I do admire this as an ideal, but I confess I'm not actually very good at it: I am a sentimental fool, and a great collector of clutter.)

"Money's just something you throw off the back of a train."
