    ... a value On it? Painting a building that needs repainting v painting a shirt to be given to tour guides as a form of commission? Your sonPlaying soccer with local children and children of people perusing the store v winding a ball of yarn? Each has its value in each persons eyes, but who is to say which has more value?
