For anyone who might be geographically challenged, that is the Wind River, north and east of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory and a little south and west of Inuvik, the Beaufort Sea and the Arctic Ocean.
For the next 2 weeks I will be enjoying the challenges of class 2 whitewater, dining on Arctic Grayling (a freshwater member of the Salmom Family) caught on a fly, doing some "bad" campfire singing and experiencing the vast beauty of the Canadian Arctic and if we are lucky, the Aurora Borealis.
Likely, the state of the world and financial markets will survive without my commentary (for the next couple of weeks, anyway) and our clients, all well-positioned to deal with any potential volatility, will remain in the very capable hands of our High Rock team.
If you are looking for reading material in the interim:
for something a little different:
PRAISE FOR BAD SINGER“In his journey to understand why, exactly, he can’t hold a tune — while having the ears and taste to appreciate great singing and songwriting — Tim Falconer takes us on a deeply absorbing journey into the worlds of brain science, singing coaches, music psychologists, ethnomusicologists, and into his own keening, music-loving heart. Bad Singer is a fun, fascinating, beautifully written, and strangely moving tale of a melodically-challenged man who yearned to sing. And it has much to say about the mystery of how music moves all of us, good and bad singers alike.”
— John Colapinto, author of Undone and member of The New Yorker staff band
