in memory of all of us

Not long after my mother died, I closed up our home and began traveling -- the journey continues, even as I sit in my front porch living room garden this beautiful morning -- it was early in my quest for purpose that I found these words of Steve Jobs that continue to inspire: "Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.
You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."
