Autumn Anenome

It snowed on the hills this week, and the temperature has certainly dropped a little, but there has been some beautiful garden sunshine and the anenomes are still in flower.  I loved the out of focus background colours in this one.

I’ve never been an Apple user, but I’m very aware of, and grateful for, the enormous contribution Steve Jobs and his company made to making technology useable.  This quote from Steve Jobs has been widely published this week – for good reason.  Find what you need to do, and do it.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary”

“When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: ‘If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.’ It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

– Steve Jobs
