As the market bounced up over 900 points today, the highest climb in its history, I traveled from Baltimore, where I had been for a friend's wedding this past weekend, up to Albany, NY. The news of where the market closed was quite a sigh of relief, as the standing of the market does have some bearing on my savings flexibility as I am building up my work.
This crazy shifting over the past weeks has reminded me that crazy times can be the best opportunity we have to evaluate what matters, and that sometimes, all that's needed to formulate next steps is some good solid plane reading. Plus, having lived away from seasons for the past few years in southern CA, an east coast jaunt is helpful to remember that everything goes through cycles, even our businesses and the systems that hold them up. Trying to prevent change in these areas is as silly as trying to glue the leaves on the trees so thy don't fall.
