I have just been to the bakery to get our morning pastry fix – we seemed to have developed a daily pastry habit this last few months, just as well there is a bit of walking involved to and from the bakery.
It’s a beautiful morning here in Korcula, the sun is shining and the sea is so perfectly still and clear, one of those mornings to remind me why it is so nice to live here. I grew up by the sea (Otago Harbour, Dunedin) and love the smell of the sea and its many moods. This morning is calm and gentle and the coffee is brewing and I have my visnja (cherry) pastry, 2 good things to start the day with.
Switching on the computer and tuning in this mornings news I note with sadness the passing of Steve Jobs, all the more poignant for me (& many others) as I have an Uncle in NZ who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 3 months ago. I find the very public sharing of grief an interesting phenomena and the prevalence of social media in our daily lives spreads so many messages of support to the Job’s family so quickly. There are so many heart-felt messages being shared, and a number of blogs already written and dedicated to Mr Jobs – here I am doing the same thing, this was not what I was not what I was intending to write about this morning but here we have it.
I found this interesting CNN article on Steve and his conversion to buddhism,
Sympathies with the family and friends of this visionary and thoughts with all families and friends who are hurting and grieving today over the loss of their own loved ones.
