Writing this on a gorgeous Sunday morning, looking out through a big kitchen window at a farm B&B in England’s lovely Cotswolds region. I’m happy to be done with our 14-day Atlantic cruise. My wife, like so many others, just loves cruising, but I get bored quickly of reading, eating, walking the deck, eating, napping – repeat. The cruise itself was nice enough, with unpleasant weather only once or twice. One evening, seemingly out of nowhere, the winds picked up and the seas just went wild. But by morning, both wind and seas were totally calm. Bizarre and, in a way, reminiscent of how markets behave at times.
