I only did one thing today.

But it was a big thing, at least for me and at this point in time of my life.

Sure -- I had other accomplishments. I woke up, conducted daily hygiene rituals, drove in my car-car, traded ripostes with others.

But I applied for what would be the job of a lifetime, editor of a newspaper that would bring me home.

As much as I've loved all my stops and made the most of it, with friends throughout 11 cities in five states, there's only one home for me -- the Wisconsin Northwoods.

So that one thing is big, even for someone accustomed to the helm of a daily newspaper where "big" decisions come as fast and furious as Vin Diesel, I'm emotionally drained.

This would be big for me, particularly as my life and career have seen what I now call "disruptions" -- those occurrences that shift the linear narrative.

One last disruption? Maybe?


  1. At the risk of jinxing the moment, I'll add nothing else but my hopes that another newpaper audience finds how good you are.

  2. Curious about what town in the Wisconsin Northwoods is your hometown. My family has a cabin in Minocqua that I travel to every summer. God's country!

    1. Chippewa Falls. But I lived in Wausau for six years and spent much time in Minocqua. God's country indeed.

  3. Well they are nutso if they don't hire you!!!
