The Perseid Meteor Shower Peaks Tonight

So perhaps you've been thinking about the stock market a lot this weekend. Or maybe you just bought a home or are trying to and you're a little freaked out because the media is making it seem like the economy is about to split apart at the seams. At times like these a little perspective is in order.

First of all, as I stated in a comment somewhere, even if the Dow drops 1000 points tomorrow, it's still about the lowest lows of February... that's even if it drops 1000 points... tomorrow. In other words, no big deal looking at the bigger picture.

If you need some more help looking at the really big picture, stumble outside in your pajamas tonight. Turn off all the lights outside and inside your house and look east. You should see a great show of meteors streaking across the sky... at the peak of the shower, at 2am Monday morning, you could see up to 100 an hour.

But maybe you missed this post... I should have warned you Friday, I know. So, just in case you missed it, here's a great song about looking up at the sky and gaining some perspective from the enormity of it all. Happy Monday.
