Hi, I’m Casey. How’s it going?
I’m a banker. And a swimmer, an armchair philosopher, a solid cook, a fantastic eater, and a reader of many books, newspaper, short stories, and various articles. I read more than I write, and I write more than I watch.
In other words, I have a lot going on. I assume that you do, too.
I started this project as a remedy to my misspent, misguided, and outrageously fun youth. I spent the entirety of my 20s working on Wall Street and while I’d avoided some of the excesses, I didn’t avoid all of them, and I got very caught up in the habits of my professional life, to the point where I’d lost quite a bit of my creative spirit.
There is a lot going on in the world right now, wouldn’t you agree? And there are a lot of people saying a lot about why they think that is, and how it happened, and what direction we’re headed in and where we should go. That’s fine: words do have power and varying perspectives do matter.
So, I thought I would share mine, a single, individual perspective, and maybe it will resonate with someone. Maybe the personal will be meaningful enough to spur conversation and deeper thought. Maybe it will be enough to create positive change.
Who knows? But, isn’t it worth a conversation? So, let’s have that conversation. Come along with me and let’s talk about it, let’s talk about everything.
We have nothing to lose. We have everything to gain.
