The Value of Art

Annie is beside me, falling asleep in my bed. She’s heard me on the phone talking about the completion of my short film.

Annie: “I hope we win all the festivals Mommy.”

Me: “That’s so sweet of you to say.”

Annie: “Then we’ll get a lot of cash.”

Me: “No honey, we won’t get any cash.”

Annie: “Then what do you get?”

Me: “Well, you get recognition for your work, and the satisfaction of knowing that your creative expression has touched other people.”

Annie: “I’d rather have the cash.”
