j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

A Lesson in Conceptualization: Steve Jobs 1955-2011

"Efforts to conceptualize the history and structure of the universe were already running into trouble because . . . the universe was not as uniform as had been assumed" ~John Noble Wilford

This ability

of Steve Jobs

to conceptualize

yet more than that

to create from a point defined

in abstract

brought to life

in a practical solution




something to covet

technology in the palm of your hand

one for the books

another to entertain

three for the money

all in amazing connection

from stars to glory

trailing bytes

transforming dots

willingly giving a place

to the ever inventive


as a miracle

portrayed from efforts of many great minds

thinking alike

yet differently

being motivated by an unusual visionary

mindful of genius

teaching us all in the end

of dreams coming true

changing how we communicate




all within a lesson

formed from an "i"

to conceptualization.

Thank you, Steve Jobs.

We will remember.

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
