From my poem “In Your Eyes”

“…The more we love another The more beautiful we become Reflected by what we see The feeling in someone’s eyes The place inside Deep and flowing Like the vision in God’s eyes Seeing us for the first time Naked and knowing That you are the best And the rest is spent Looking for the moment […]

Steve Jobs quote from his 2005 graduation speech at Stanford

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
