Steve Jobs passed away yesterday. I don't know if he played golf, but he shares three good stories of his life here to ponder. Well worth a watch.

He certainly didn't do things conventionally. Just a reminder how important our health is and how fragile we are without it... I don't think it was ever about the money for Steve. One of my friends knew him a bit in the mid 70's and had some interesting stories about him to say the least.

I heard this one recently ...

"In men whom men condemn as ill
I find so much of goodness still.
In men whom men pronounce divine
I find so much of sin and blot
I do not dare to draw a line
Between the two, where God has not."

- Joaquin Miller

We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us.
Albert Einstein

Maybe the same holds true for golf.
