Found Money

I'm drawing a blank as I often do after a hard day. But I decided to let my fingers do the walking to see what shakes out.
I made up my mind several weeks ago that I was going to start finding money. It was more than an affirmation, it was a knowing. So ever time I go to work, to buy groceries, to rent a video or to the library I start looking around as I walk. Almost every day for the past two weeks I've found a little money; a penny here, a dime there, and last Friday I found $6 in the parking lot of our building.
I have a jar by my dresser and I put the "found" money in there. I want to do something special with it but I've yet to make up my mind just what. At first I was thinking about buying a lottery ticket because I felt like the money had an air of luck attached to it, but then I began to think; this is a gift from the Universe and it should not be squandered. Jilda suggested we give it to charity which has a certain symmetry to it so that might be what we do but I'm keeping my options open. If you have a suggestion as to a unique way to pass along "found" money, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    Put the money, along with your writing, in a time capsule in your back yard.
