It's been a rough week, darlings. Much teetering + tottering has ensued; I can't stop myself from pressing "refresh" on the New York Times online to watch as the red numbers climb ever higher. It's a train wreck, boy howdy, and we're all along for the ride.
I'm trying to follow my own advice, but finding clarity is no easy task during these times. In conversations with friends, we speculate endlessly on what might happen next, on where the "bottom" is or if there even is one. Thank goodness for sites like Sad Guys on Trading Floors that offer a humorous look at the situation (via Jen M).
What does all of this mean for Random Photo Friday? Time to cull the photo library for happy times, when the Dow was well above 10,000 and the crisis was still bubbling beneath the surface, unseen.

I shall leave you with this:
