Of today, my son said, “It’s like the whole world stopped this evening. There’s nothing else on the Internet or anywhere else but talk of Steve Jobs.” True. I had things to do–important stuff. But I stopped too. And I googled–with an unexplainable heaviness of loss–bits and pieces, trivia and quotes, of man who changed us and our lives.
Most of what I found online anyone can just as easily find for themselves. So here’s a collection from my Facebook newsfeed–words from the ordinary, every day lives that feel the loss of Steve Jobs.
I am truly sorry to hear about the death of Steve Jobs. I truly feel that if it was not for him I would not have become a “techy grandma” His innovations have allowed us to enjoy the ipad, ipod, imac and a host of other things. I felt so sad when I opened my computer and saw his picture saying 1955 to 2011.–Lena
