What does "gold" bring to mind for you? What positive or negative connotations does "gold" have for you? What does "gold" represent for you? What does it make you think of?

Consider it like those "free association" games where you just start listing whatever comes to mind, and go from there. And what are your emotional responses? Good, bad, indifferent?

(This is in the "Relationships" forum because after hearing a bunch of people discuss this at work recently, I am interested in the emotional responses and associations we make)

What say ye?

part of me thinks of how the greed for gold led to murder of ancient peoples
another part of me thinks of how the gold standard in finance keeps things in balance
and from there I go to the golden rule
