Well, we’ve got the market continuing to “violently go nowhere” but now with a downward drift to the week. I’m mostly doing nothing and waiting for something to make sense. A couple of the biggest name hedge funds have thrown in the towel and folks are generally saying it’s a terrible market to trade. I agree, so I’ve not done much. I’ll do a full WSW posting in the next day or two, but for now, not a lot of interest visible.
Global Warming stuff has reached a ‘pause point’ for me too. I think I’ve figured out a lot of what’s actually happening and some of what’s wrong with the codes being used by ‘climate scientists’ to make their computer fantasy models. So I’m waiting for the next bit of inspiration. There are a lot of ways I could go with it right now, but the lack of trading income means my time has to be budgeted to the things that matter the most. And planning schedule optimization does not make for good postings.
So here are some photos of ‘texture’ to stare at while pondering which way to take things. (That is something I tend to do. Just look at a photo of texture and let the mind calm. A kind of meditation thing. Then the inspiration tends to come.) This is a ‘mixed bag’ of some taken today and some from years past. No real theme, just things I like. I’ll toss in a few more ‘normal’ pictures of animals and plants just so things are not too strange…
I find it curiously interesting. What happens to old cars.
And from a dark, but not creepy side:
I have a version of this with the leaves more visible, but find this outline with green edges and very dark sky more interesting. In a dark kind of way.
This is our cat, which died some months back, in happier days. She loved to curl up in this ‘cat ring’ and sleep.
She had just shown up one day to adopt us, then stayed for 18 or 20 some odd years…
In the parking lot, folks rarely think about the pavement:
We walk over, and past, a remarkable collection of things. I once found $100 on the pavement just because I was the only person of the dozens walking past who bothered to see it.
The texture of the pavement when scored for repaving, especially when a leave would fall on it, made for odd ‘strain’ in the pictures.
Then we have a study in feathers and eyes…
Amaranth, especially the red kinds, can be striking.
I think that’s probably enough for now. I’ll look it over and see what I think. I’m pretty sure this is enough. We’ll see. But every project needs an end, and an exit:
