Lock Watch for the Week of 2/4/2019
Compared to last week, there should be relatively few fireworks driven by economic reports. With the backdrop of a Fed perhaps on hold, this week's auctions (3, 10 and 30) could be interesting.

One can only assume that a baby born 15 weeks early, that loses its sight at 3 months due to complications from prematurity, would cause the parents immense concern and stress for the future. That is, unless and by a beautiful stroke of fate, that child soon develops an otherworldly musical talent that continues to blossom into multi-instrumentalism mastery. This is the story of Rachel Flowers. I had never heard of her until I stumbled across a video of her playing a solo version of Boston's Foreplay/Longtime.
Now granted, the Boston tune is timelessly great, and it does hold a special place in my heart because we used to play it in our high school band, but Rachel's ebullient performance is spot-on and uplifting, to say the least. Check out more of Rachel's story out if you want to be inspired to start the week.
