'you can't connect the dots looking forward. you can only connect them looking backwards. so you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. you have to trust in something. your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. because believing that the dots will connect down the road, will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even if it leads you off the well worn path. and that will make all the difference.'

I can't stop thinking about Steve Jobs and his death. Somehow it inspired me to dream all last night about my mother dying. They were both in their late fifties; they both died way too soon; they both experienced two of the worst cancers (not that any of them are good). I can't imagine what his family feels like right now since the rest of world is so devastated and feels the gravity of losing such a visionary. I hope that someday I will have lived long enough to be old and grey and wrinkled and sitting in a rocking chairs, telling my grandchildren all about the genius Steve Jobs and how he changed the world by being brave enough to be himself and think differently.
