We all have our gripes but everything’s pretty good out here. For the Us that I’m acquainted with. And perhaps my own circle is relatively limited, but it seems those that I tangentially bump into are doing similarly well.

Though I did introduce the guillotine to my experiment in the stock market today. I had planned to hold for three months, but I only made it six weeks. Marriott and NYT were double-digits up. TJX, Apple and Bank of America were single digits down. If I’m lucky I evened out after trading commissions. I just don’t trust the market not to crash and burn (everything seems bubbly, especially in Boston). And I don’t want to tie my daily emotional goodness to the whims of the masters of the universe.

Speaking of bubbly, the bulk of the work I’m doing these days is fully dependent on a hot steamy boiling real estate market and general American prosperity. And so a big question on my mind is, what do I do when the market nose dives? Plunges through the mantle and into the big roiling ball of melted iron in the middle of Earth.

Thinking, thinking. And knowing that luck and hard work will continue to do me well.
