New Year, 50th B-Day, Miami Beach

First, I don't know where I was this past year, but who knew Michelle Williams separated from her husband of less than a year last April, and now is 6 months preggo with director of Hamilton.  Wow.  Her hot messiness on screen I guess carries over into her personal life at times.

And I'm hearing a lot of sacred 60's and 70's songs as soundtracks for commercials, but the most disturbing and painful is the Righteous Brothers epic Unchained Melody being used to sell Kentucky Fried Chicken's newest product.  Seriously, that's criminal, and wrong.

In Miami Beach, packing. Been here since Dec 27.  Brought down a big gang to pre-celebrate my 50th, which I turn in February, wedged between Lincoln's B-day and Valentines Day.   Rest left on 31, son stayed till 3rd, and I'm packing up now to get back to work for 2 days of bill paying and cash flow sweating.  Caught myself watching Entertainment Tonight and America's Got Talent the other night - now that's relaxing.

I like to read, but for some reason half the time I pick up books I know are going to be a slog - I don't know why I do it.  But recently I've been zeroed on autobiographies and memoirs.  Elon Musk, Nelson Mandela, and currently Richard Branson.  I lack industry peer groups, so I have to get my motivation, insight, caution, ideas, affirmation from somewhere, and these books are doing the trick.  "Staying the course" is an unspoken motif through all the books.  I'm reading Branson's "Losing my Virginity' now and it's a good one for me since it seems to be reigniting that caution is for losers streak I've always had, but that has been tampered by a plateau of success.  Spend through problems was/is his secret - don't pull back, push forward.  (I'm aware the pics below might not be oriented upright, but that's just the way it is and I can't figure out how to turn).

Christmas was good, always surrounded by family.

I've had a bay front condo in Miami since 2012.  But with a shitty Board of Directors, a never ending building construction project, sea rise that floods the streets on sunny days and better use for my money, I'm selling at the end of February.  Will be sad, but risk management requires hard decisions.  I can always airbnb is without the macro risk of Southern Florida.
