00.01 – The Book Deal Develops

Over the years it’s been suggested on several occasions,  that perhaps I should write a book.

Not to say that my story is anything special ( by any means ) but fair to say “unique” – as I’ve wondered this planet some 15 years now with little to no sense of “home” and with few connections to anything……or anyone. Some call it lonely – I call it normal, as for the majority of my adult life – this is all I’ve known.

I used to stay at the same hotel whenever I’d get back to visit my family, and the girls at the front desk always had a chuckle. Knowing me as they did –  I’d been filed under “N for Nomad”. I had a laugh too.

Reasons for this behavior run the gambit. I have my own theories as do I assume  – those who know me. It’s not important. Without question I’m as regular a person as any on Earth, questioning at times – ” what am I doing?”  and “why am I the way I am?”

Up until most recently I’ve had little interest in “writing it all down”. From confrontations with machine gun packing Rastas in the West Indies…to long dark drives into “deep dark places” of Colombia…to the “helplessness” of being  trapped in an elevator in Romania. Problem being – I’ve never had a “plot” and for the life of me can’t come up with a decent ending.

Don’t get me wrong – there are some really good times as well.

They just don’t make for very interesting stories.

A pivotal day in “the life of Kong” as a number of factors come into play. Of particular significance “00.01” the irony, the drama – and further development of a story that just might have a plot……….and an ending!

      Now this is what we call ” true intuition” !

      How some people have such ability to read between the lines – amazing.

      Let’s not get carried away here just yet – but…..having “someone to care about” and perhaps more importantly “someone who cares about Kong” – certainly is a developing part of the story.

      Gees…I’ve got to watch out here……you are good!

    There is nothing better in life than having someone special to share the journey with…..thru good and bad.

      Hi $tuart – thanks for stopping in.

      An interesting trade choice there with AUD/CAD as I rarely (if ever) trade one commod currency “against” another. You peaked my interest and Ive pulled the chart.

      You are absolutely spot on with respect to a buy in this area – as it appears to be at the bottom of a very long running range here around 1.00

      Good luck with the trade – I’ll be following along.

    Knock em dead Kong – sounds like you’re a survivor….. take one to know one! Of course I could be completely wrong…. but I am pretty good at this…. but not having been able to make the personal connection makes it a little more difficult.

    Never the less keep banging away – I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason…. we control our own destiny to a very large extent, luck plays a good portion & hard work. Does not matter what one does in life hard work is eventually rewarded – what helps is being able to have a career that does not seems like work.

    Such as investing is for me – I suspect it’s the same for you – countless hours spent without a flinch of time passing by.

    Again, best of luck & looking forward to the finished product……

    Cheers Schmed,

      As usual Schmed – thanks a pile for the continued support here at the blog, as well the window into your own trading and investing ideas.

      Given the chance it’s unlikely I’d change a damn thing, as it’s been an absolute rip thus far – and I can only imagine life getting better and better. I take fewer chances these days, and am no stranger to hard work.

      We’ll keep pluggin along. You never know what tomorrow brings!

      Go man go
