Another one: Oblivious of risk

A friend of mine once chided me for supposing that my ordinary job represented "security" compared to the risks of starting a business of my own. He said, "you aren't just standing on the edge of the cliff, you are leaning out into the wind!" - meaning that I was apparently unaware of how much risk I was taking.

I have long thought this is a great metaphor for the way seemingly everyone feels so secure in our economic situation, not noticing how it all depends on the inflationary winds of the FED.

I'm sure it translates to other "risk blindness" as well. If somebody wants to try to capture the concept in a drawing, I'd like to see it.

I'm voting for Peace.
