Bears Everywhere

This afternoon Sweet M made this drawing . . .

Usually her drawings are of houses, satellites, female figures, cupcakes, treehouses, and butterflies, so I was a bit surprised by this frightening image.

When I asked her what it was, she said, "It's a bear."

When I said it looked looked cool but scary, she said, "Don't worry — it's just a bear mask."

I wish that adults trading stocks in our mutual funds could have the same sanguine outlook on the bears that are running through Wall Street.

Perhaps it's not a bear market, but a bear mask market — all make-believe like the fictitious wealth that preceded it.
