What does it mean to be rich?

Trent from the Simple Dollar talks about it in terms of abundance and scarcity, but I like Oleg's take better:
"Sometimes, I am rich. Not always, but I was rich yesterday. I had more of what I wanted than I actually needed — my sole constraint being the 24/7 limit of available time shared by all. I had more storage capacity in the camera and props than I could photograph in a day, more ammunition than I could shoot in the range time I have, more perfectly ripe watermelon and fancy chocolate than I could eat, more good friends than I could see all at once or in turn."

Blogger's Dead Man Switch

I read most of my favorite blogs and web sites using a RSS reader. One blogger I read is in poor health. He must have scheduled a good-bye post that he would continually update and push the date out. Except one time he must have forgotten or otherwise been unable to move the date.

I saw the post in my RSS feed, but when I checked his site, the entry had been pulled. It was eerie, sad, and beautiful all as the same time.

I am happy to report that he was still posting last week.
