What did I miss?

It was a stellar morning on Palmilla Beach.  The color of the orioles, the sparkling water, the whales breaching, the Ocean 9 course alive in color, the fresh coffee, hell, come to think of it, it just seems like another day in paradise.  But, somebody has to do it.   And it just as well be me.   

Why not?   I paid the dues.   The only cost of entry was working half days, six to six.   Life is good and getting a hell of a lot better.   Every day.

I haven't been keeping up with much on the macro front in America.  Am holding a lot of cash, far more than anything "normal" and will get back in the saddle when I get back to the ranch.  The markets aren't going anywhere.  They are open 6.5 hours of the day in New York and one can place bets accordingly around the world at any given time.

For now, let me ask you.

Where is America headed?  We have a 40-year high of inflation.

Taxpayers have been hoodwinked into spending billions in Ukraine

There are millions of violent primitives flooding the country.

The yield curve is still inverted.

And we have a liar with dementia being called President of the United States.  The stooge continues to sell America his "JOE" sandwiches, unfortunately, we all have to take a bite.  If you have any ideas on where the U.S. is headed fire away.  I listen to about everyone.  

Today, right here, right now, is a good day to pray and to give thanks.

To say that I am grateful for the life I have is an understatement.  They always called me a dreamer but there is absolutely no way my life has turned out the way I thought it would. We all face great challenges in life. All of us. It is a privilege we all have just to wake up in America.

I thank my Creator daily for the will and motivation that my parents fostered towards education. The privilege of education. We all have it. It is what prompted me to start my scholarship at the University of Minnesota. My scholarship helps leverage resources to produce long-term meaningful impact for students who need them the most and to help break the cycle of poverty, addiction, moral courage, and the suffocating absence of opportunity in Indian Country.

Call it American privilege, I get it, you should too. Gratitude is an awful powerful human emotion and I am elated to have plenty of it.

Every. Single. Day.
