I’m most inspired to do creative things when I feel calm. I don’t feel calm these days. Ever since the whole planet sailed off the map financially, into regions previously unknown, I’ve lost my Zen.

Today the Dow closed down another 100-plus points…a decline so unremarkable that it feels like a gain in light of recent events…but only after swinging back and forth an unfathomable 1,000-plus points in about an hour.

There’s never been a day like today in the history of the New York Stock Exchange. There’s never been a week like this week, either. Ever. And that makes it hard to sit down and write blog posts.

So I hope you’ll excuse the lack of recent entries here. Perhaps the storm will pass soon, and with it, my motivation to write will come back.
