Steve Jobs 1955-2011

This post is a little tribute to one of my favorite inspirational characters, Steve Jobs, Amen!

We all lost a world-class visionary yesterday, we could never thank you enough. You changed the way we use the web, listen to music, design stuff and the way we live. Definitely, one of the most innovative thinkers the world has ever seen.

You made my life so much easier, prettier and fun, thanks to your innovative spirit, you left an incredible legacy. A genius, a risk-taker, and above all, an inspiration.. Rest in peace boss.

Gil Scott-Heron | Musician and Poet

It was a shock to hear of the passing of this creative and talented man. I was fortunate to meet Mr. Scott-Heron last year at a show held in his honor on Martin Luther King Day. Gil Scott-Heron is credited as being the father of modern hip hop. He fused the spoken word with music in a manner that was later adopted by other artists. His work has been sampled by contemporary artists like Kanye West. During his set he spoke in detail about social issues and history. At one point during his set he gave a brief history of jazz. He was very concerned about young people and young artists. I found him to be incredibly warm and caring. He will definitely be missed while his legacy continues through his music and art.

Laughter

The human race has  one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.

-Mark Twain

We need to lighten up, enjoy life. Even when things are not perfect you can still laugh in the face of it. I recently read some information about joy and specifically laughter by Joyce Meyer. Children laugh on average 150 times a day, while adults laugh 4 to 8 times a day. Scientific studies show that laughter is like a medicine because it can cause the release of endorphins that reduce stress, boost the immune system, lower cholesterol, stimulate the nervous system, and increase cardiovascular health.

 

Most know laughter can pull us out of depression or sadness; it can even give us boosts of energy; and it can completely change our attitude or outlook on a situation.

~Joyce Meyer
