In the face of the loss of someone so great as Steve Jobs – someone who, with little formal education, completely changed the entire world, not just in terms of technology, but in terms of ideas and inspiration – I cannot help but think about legacy. What does it mean to leave a legacy? What will ours be? Obviously we can’t all have the incredible impact of people like Steve Jobs, but the important question is, will we have AN impact? Will we leave the world better than we found it? Have we loved with such inspiring sincerity that the objects of that love are forever changed, and moved, in turn, to love as they were loved? Does what we write inspire those who read it to lead better, more positive lives? Will our children rise up and call us blessed? Will the art that we leave behind us embody our souls for future generations? All of these are the legacy I hope to leave. Today I am inspired to keep at it.
