"Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose..."

"...a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye." -- Mary Shelley

It's been a great couple of days as we move steadily forward toward the Monday launch of I'm surrounded in this effort by wise women, Lauren and Molly in particular, with the content and intention of the site being refined almost daily. I'm very gratified by all the emails I have received, including one this afternoon from my second cousin James Hayes, the Irish sculptor, offering to help test the site over the weekend.

All signs are auspicious for the niche that I'll operate from. Whether you look at the increased emphasis on flu preparation from the government, or today's stories about large banks who operate under close regulatory oversight, it looks like the world will welcome our efforts. The company offers me a forum from which to push for reform and for better risk controls, to influence some of the outcomes at the national and global levels. What more tranquility could anyone be looking for?

In for a penny, in for a pound.
