Earlier this week, we received a stark reminder that things change. It doesn't matter if we don't want them to; it doesn't matter if we're not ready. We can't freeze time1. We can't pretend things will ever be the same. The old sign is gone. So is the website. Who knows where an email sent to an old address will end up. There are so many questions. There are so few answers. But in the midsts of it all, there is still one thing we can count on:
There will always be fleeces.
"Already spotted a Point72 fleece on the train ride back from Stamford today. Instead of the black ones which we have all grown to love, 72Point is being represented by a dark blue. Looked real sharp...damn if these guys don't know how to pick a color scheme."
Take comfort in that.
