HOME DEPOT and the crystal ball...

Last night I went to Home Depot at about 7 o'clock. I always like going at night, as there is usually a pretty good buzz there. People buying stuff at a steady pace but not crazy like during the work day or worse, weekends.
Anyway, last night I pulled into the parking lot, over in LIC, and the lights were off in the lot. I went inside and the place was dead. A ghost town. Man this economy is totally fucked. Home Depot is dead at night in Queens.
I am totally worried about this economy. The art market is dead and I have this big show coming up in March. It is one of these solo shows as part of an art fair. In the past 4-5 years, this would potentially mean serious cash to the artist involved. You have to pay top dollar to be involved. We are talking 10's of thousands for the weekend. My dealer is covering the costs. But yesterday I made a delivery to my framer and got
a whopping estimate for the drawings. After going to the Home Depot last night I canceled the order. I ordered a bunch of cheap-o frames on -line and the work is going to look just fine.
The art fair wants thousands more to construct walls for our booth so we can have a place to hang my work. Well, I've been building these temporary sculptures to hold my work instead. Sure the economy is circling the drain, but the way that I am saving money, I should get at least a few more trips around the bowl before I go down into the sewer.
How is that for optimism?

Sounds like it might be time to dust off that copy of The Secret, Mr. Kramer. Or AT LEAST place it deliberately on the back of the toilet, within reach.

the only stores that are crowded are trader joes, delis that sell lottery tickets and liquor stores

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
