Watched Steve Jobs’ speech on the value of life and awareness of death. Particularly poignant in the face of his death yesterday. Thought how moving that the whole world is mourning, not something one would associate with technology. That there are small remembrances at Apple stores.
Stomach burning – feeling as if scrubbed out with sandpaper. Not unusual, but tiresome. Realize how easy it is to let it be the centre of my thoughts.. Remembered that he said live each day as if it were our last and ask yourself if it were your last day, would you have wished to have lived that way. Of course, I wouldn’t want to live my last day with backache and a raw stomach, but then so many days are like that. The alternative is to make my inner self a place of sunlight and that would be my choice. Whether I can do it is another matter, but thinking of Steve, I can try.
