Steve Jobs 1955-2011

My daughter came home from school today and told me they were celebrating the death of Steve Jobs. She is in first grade and I think she may be misusing the word ‘celebration’. I asked if she knew who he was and she said he was the creator of Apple. She also said her computers at school are Apple and her teacher’s own computer that she takes home with her is an Apple. I reminded her that all our computers were also Apples. And this wireless keyboard I love so much. And my sleek little wireless mouse. I can do what I do today with as much joy because of the genius of Jobs. I am in deep appreciation of his drive and creativity. And while I wont celebrate his death, I do celebrate his life – every time I sit down at this desk and turn my computer on. Thank you Mr Jobs.
