“Stay Hungry Stay Foolish…” #tribute #SteveJobs


How can society not applaud a man like Steve Jobs? A trend setter, visionary, entrepreneur, humanitarian are just a few of the many hats he has worn. Living in Silicon Valley, some close friends were Apple employees. Twenty years ago I co-founded a non-profit, Apple allowed their employees to donate their computers so that we could run more effectively and help the poor in our county. I wonder if Jobs knew how many people he unknowingly assisted over the years. Some of you know, others may not, that when the iPad came on the market it was made available to special needs children at no cost; these kids thrive on the technology available to them and who knows what their minds will conjure up for the future.

Several years ago Jobs gave a speech to the graduating class at Stanford University – “How to Live Before You Die”. Jobs reflects on starting Apple in a garage,losing his position at Apple and starting NEXT and then Pixar; he communicates that you should “find what you love” “do what you believe is a great work.” “No one wants to die but we all share that destination.” Jobs with a  diagnosis of pancreatic cancer didn’t live the decades he would have liked but he did have more than 6 years, after the diagnosis,  no can doubt were rich and generous years.

His advice to those Seniors, and I believe to all of us, was “Stay Hungry Stay Foolish” “Love What You Do …your time is limited.” Thank You Steve Jobs for your great contribution to our world!!!!

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. A great loss for the world indeed. A mind like his does not come along often. His genius was not that he was an innovator of products, but he knew how to organize those who had the skills to create his vision—that’s a true gift.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
