The technological challenges during the work professionally and privately have not passed.

But that's a first-world problem, a phrase my daughter taught me when she was about 15.

I'm happy, healthy. I have enough money to get Friday fish fry tonight. Better, Kid is killing it in Hollywood. The weather in northern Wisconsin in July is utterly beautiful. Hot but low humidity. I have a fan for sleeping. I write my weekly columns on a place -- Powell's on the Lake -- where huge windows look west as the sun sets. My colleagues work their butts off to make the best newspapers we can.

So I can't send out emails? I can't access photos when I need them? Mere trivialities.

Those are still stressful when readers expect their newspapers regardless of our problems and the resiliency of my staff confirms to me I'm in the right place at the right time.

Still, I'm allowed to be exhausted.

And that I am.

But I write from a decent restaurant where I know I'll get a righteous fish. I'm having a couple drinks before dinner and then bed awaits. It's more a mattress on the floor still.

Some might view it as nothing more than a dog bed. But it will be mine.

And I shall sleep full and well.

Peace unto Ukraine and peace and deep sleep unto you my brothers and sisters.


  1. Question Rich. Do you think your life and work is any more challenging than the world's current richest man, Musk? Indeed, are you just working for a paycheck? Life is fullest when in a state of Flow, and that transcends any paycheck. Just ask Kid.

  2. I was at point of loosing everything I had, before a colleague told me about a great CREDIT HACKER called KENSTAR. I spoke with him about the issues with my card on late payments. He listened and got my details. What I thought was impossible to handle, To the glory of God I was texted that 354 score have been added to my credit, late payments cleared in less than 72hours. Reach out to him via Tel: +1 (765) 351-1054 and Email: KENSTARCYBERSERVICES@GMAIL.COM

  3. Dr Ogweshan is totally top notch. I would never trust anyone with my problems. He is completely reliable and compassionate and his spells are truly powerful. He has definitely gotten me through some really tough times and my husband who has left me due to my illness is now back with me with Ogweshan spells. Dr Ogweshan is worth talking about and deserves recognition because he is totally a genius. Anyone who needs help in his/her relationship should kindly contact him on Whatsapp or call +234 806 355 4683
