Mojo Monday: Steve Jobs, An Ode

It’s Mojo Monday, and as always, I’ve got a little something-something to lift your creative spirits, buoy you up, help you get your mojo on, and nudge (or better yet, catapult) you into writerhead.


I was lying in bed reading Tweets on my iPhone when I saw the news that Steve Jobs had died, and in that moment, I felt a slice of the universe go silent. I’d known it was coming. He was so skinny and gaunt during his last appearances. But geesh, I was thrown. Heartbroken. Silent myself.

Man, I would have loved to have interviewed Steve about his writerhead. Dug into his moments of deep creative flow. How did they feel? What did they look like? To what would he have compared his writerhead?

Anyway, I think the best way to honor him is to follow his lead. So be good to your creative impulses today…and get thee to writerhead.

(Back in April, I posted the video of his 2005 commencement speech at Stanford. Here it is again.)
