Prompt: Pretend money is no object. What would you do?

I find it interesting that this is the prompt today. I had a conversation last night about how money is technically an idea rather than an object nowadays. We no longer have to physically see gold bars or cash in order to purchase something. Technology has allowed for all of that to disappear. Money-II

He recently listened to a Podcast where people were discussing the idea that everyone might just receive (for lack of a better word) an allowance in upcoming years since machines and robots are set to become the workers of the future. We sat there for a while pondering what that world would look like. Would people get lazy? Would they become more creative? How would they fill their time? How would we? Would they still strive to be more, accomplish more? Would it free up our minds enough to advance society in ways we never thought possible before?

I was rather glib in my response to what I would do. Without really thinking, I responded that I would paint, write and travel. Those are the things I love to do most in the world.

But honestly, if money was no object, that really is what I would do. I would write all the books I have had in my mind for so long. I would take classes and learn how to paint well enough that I could love my own work. And I would travel the world meeting new people, experiencing new cultures, and seeing every beautiful sight I could lay eyes on.

What would you do if money were no object?
