Dear Friends and Thinkers,
I’ve been on vacation from Bull! Not bull - both physically and mentally for the past month or so. During that period, I’ve kept only a cursory eye on news and markets and used the internet sparingly. Much to my surprise, the world has not fallen to pieces in my absence, and I have returned refreshed and with new perspectives that I hope to share with readers over the coming months. There may also be some major changes coming up that I’ll discuss if they come about.
Taking a “news fast” one day a week is something that Dr. Andrew Weil suggests in his book, Eight Weeks to Optimal Health.. As the good doctor says (p. 78), “I don’t want you to become uninformed about the state of the world, but I note that paying attention to news commonly results in anxiety, rage, and other emotional states that probably impede the healing system.”
Thank you for all the emails expressing your concern – the vacation was great, and it is also great to be back! Daily updates on the homepage will resume as normal.
