It seems like I'm hearing lots of fear based messages in the local media and on the blogs.
This isn't all bad. Fear--like pain-- can be a warning.
Even messages of 'don't fear' or 'we're hopeful' can ironically come across as unintentionally revealing of the mindset.
We're keeping our average above what I consider the red-zone, and Linda's store continues to do really well. (In fact, she's getting kind of overwhelmed.) Pegasus had it's best day of the year, yesterday, which was a bit of a relief because I had totally restocked the store from top to bottom, and was wondering if I should have done that.
But I'm getting this feeling that people are starting to seek out retail 'refuges'; places they can sense are healthy, and humming along, and that they can be comfortable in.
I have no idea where that feeling is coming from.
Just a hope, probably.
