morning times is packed

The crowd at Morning Times is my gauge for the economic and creative state of the world. Some people watch the stock markets, or read the Wall Street Journal or listen to the BBC, but I think the upstairs of this coffee shop in the middle of downtown in the middle of the state in the middle of eastern US, between Europe and Japan, in the middle of the morning has to be pretty close to the barometer of the state of the world, or a little better. Today, I’m seeing mostly collaborations – recognizable moguls, a city official, young professionals, people with glasses, a guy in a sportcoat and jeans, and my homeless friend Dan.


So, that’s mostly good news. It means that work . . . is in the works. I see people putting pens to paper, faces are serious and intentional. It’s a tempered, productive optimism that recognizes realities but will create opportunity. That’s a great place to be, and will make for a positive second quarter, just like the Wall Street Journal would say.
