Dreamed 1974/1/26 by Chris Wayan
I'm confused at the Aquarium;
Death always bewilders me so.
Eels eat minnows, whales eat eels.
So they go.
Baleena, a spirit whale, slender, white-
Baleena, lean and hungry, swims home--in air--
Baleen can't grasp bluffing, though.
Baleena shouldn't have to." Hub says "No,
Years pass. I think I live alone. But one day
Notes in the Morning
Over the next decade I learned I really couldn't bluff and compete the way American business demands. Even job interviews and salary negotiations were torture for me. Today I think it's not just shyness but a sensory difference. I feel strong empathy--read emotions too well--so zero-sum games like poker hurt to play!
But I could pick investments--because I wasn't fighting others, just supporting stuff I liked. Like blackjack, you play the house--no enemies. I made a fortune that way.
Not poker, blackjack! Baleena turned out to be me.
Afterthought (for Intuitives and Shy, Noncompetitive People)
We don't have to get ahead at work to succeed. Live cheap, save up slowly, and invest it in the market--something you believe in--a specialty you know, or social investing (firms with good labor & consumer relations), or a fund backing firms run by folks you trust (female-led firms, Christian firms, you name it) or even just the market in general. American culture sneers at us for being noncompetitive. Let them sneer.
Get rich slow.
