government of my temper

From my grandfather, Verus, I learned good morals and
the government of my temper.

~ The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
Pink Floyd's Money came to mind initially, but I knew it wasn't a good fit for our Father of Earth. He simply isn't like that. The Father of Earth is a legacy builder, creating wealth and stability not only for himself, but also others. His work is deliberate and planned on solid foundations, like old houses with good bones. And he is, indeed, even-tempered, but I wouldn't recommend crossing him. The anger may not be quick, but shit will be remembered and if you're on that list then it's best you just leave now. Second chances are rarely granted. Believe me, it would take a lot to get on this Father's bad side because he is very tolerant of human shortcomings. However, if you're with him, working together, you really can't go wrong. He won't take all the accolades either. The Father of Earth wants to see you succeed and he'll do everything in his power to that end.

So.

Set your feet on the ground (this is an Earth element, after all) and get yourself together. Roll up those sleeves and strap on the boots. There's work to do. This work doesn't just benefit you. Like the Father of Earth, you're responsible for others today. So, step up, Buttercup. It's going to be a busy day. And when you rest your head tonight, know that the work you've done is good.
