As of Wednesday, I am leaving the private practice of law. I have taken a job with a private company and because of the all of the work involved in the move, will be blogging lightly until I get settled in to my new position late in the week. I have a lot of work to do to prepare for the transition to my new life.
This is a time of sweet sorrow for me. No more Seven Years of Bad Luck. My fortunes appear to have changed. For the first time in I don't remember how long, I feel that I finally have some hope for the future. The oil industry is booming, and I am going to try to ride the wave for as long as I can.
Now it's the story of the Seven Fat Cows and the Seven Skinny Cows. I think we may be entering into a new time of the Seven Fat Cows. But we shouldn't become complacent. We must prepare for the Seven Skinny Cows. Oil is a cyclical market, and it is notorious for being a "feast or famine" and "boom and bust" market. And I am not even entirely convinced that it is not being manipulated right now. In any case, you have to strike while the iron is hot, and it sure looks hot to me.
