Money Talk. Tone Matters.

Some

say market downturns dissuade. Casual investors stack statements to one side. They pile up just like the losses they report. Not us. Quite the opposite actually. We love it.

 

Investing’s difficult, until you accept that investing’s difficult. At that point, if you’re still paying attention, it’s fun. Losses still suck, but in an entirely different way. Once fully committed, losing only ups your game. Maybe Alabama will go that way. Or not. Have you. Never avert your eyes. Full agency is the way.

 

What

can we say?  Clarity’s elusive at times–even tough.  Texting’s fine.  IM means now.  Phone calls?  Really, people mean well.  They try, occasionally.  Life’s busy for everyone and everyone’s busy at life, sort of.  Yet money won’t wait, and neither will we.

 

Our equity market’s on a mission, always.  Text the market, if you like.  IM the price action of your favs, but don’t wait for a response.  We never do.  Phone calls?  Well, we’ve tried sweet talk–“We love you and will you fix our fucking problem–now?”

 

Listen.  Movies are fine, and music’s even better.  I’ve got a woman, and she’s got me.  But so what?  When I give her money she doesn’t ask where.  That part’s up to me–and you.  What’d you gonna do?

 

The holidays are over now, and we’re not broke.  Nor will any filth float through the post at us.  We moved anyway.  No forwarding address submitted.  We’re funny that way.  We never sweat, and we never stink, physically.  When they catch up, we shrug and say “It was sudden.”  Which was true.

 

 

Life’s

a crazy romance and living an art.  Tread lighting, wear tennis shoes while holding on loosely.  Active engagement is the way.  No substitute exists for living in the moment.  When we lose the immediacy of children we’re left with tedium.  That’s the mistake adults like J. Powell make.

 

Sinatra said it best, when concerning life. “I have got a crush my baby on you.”  That’s as simple as it gets but hard to live out.  Our money’s moving constantly–just like many adjunct college lecturers.  Keeping up with friends over time requires effort.  That’s exactly like keeping up with your money.  It is yours after all, until you lose track.

 

Many act as if paying attention too closely to their money is uncouth.  Talking about money is crass.  Those are the people whose financial lives resemble a dorm room.  They yet use checks and possess vague notions of what they’re invested in.  They believe the 401K is a retirement vehicle created for individuals, rather then a financial product designed as a corporate pension dodge.

The internet is an extremely unsafe setting. It will come at you in many ways, while lulling you to sleep. The market is exactly the same. The narrative often resembles rap lyrics. Never disengage when things go funk. Fire back, in intensely-targeted 3-round bursts. We do. Retreat is wise at times. But do so leap-frog fashion, while layering covering fire.

 

Money is like a cat.  Accept it or not, cats are people too, only much quieter.  Some feel food and water represent “care.”  Yet ignore them enough and they will stroll quietly away, they say.  Never seen it.  Nonetheless, your money’s the same way.  Amen.

Fully engaged. It’s called “agency.” Your money’s exactly the same. Engage and prosper. Ignore and it walks away.

 

Thanks for reading.
