Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish

The last words of Steve Job's powerful graduation speech at Stanford University, "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish."

Those who know me, really know me, know that I am a crier. Not once in a while, and not only when in response to deep loss, but I cry when highly emotional: sad, angry, moved, nostalgic, joyful, ect.

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish- that did it to me today. Sitting here, listening to the power of his words, I really started feeling choked up.  The dogs in my lap, some moments to write before I start working on a grant review.

Life is so bittersweet. Careers are so bitter sweet. But how lucky we are, to be able to play with words. Writing, such a wonderfully foolish, foolish thing to do.
