Fall Daze

on
Moby Dick

The Daze of Fall is upon me. We have decorated for fall/Halloween, we have all gotten sick with our first cold and/or allergies, and it is that time in which (at work) there is no downtime. It is football season, but this year not basketball season (sadly).

I have been thinking a lot about the passing of Steve Jobs and the (seemingly) randomness of life/world altering success. If you have never read MOBY DICK, it is worth at least for the chapter in which Melville lets us look into his thoughts and see how he viewed the world/universe of the 19th century (see the chapter called The Mat-Maker). I think he may well have been quite ahead of his time.
