Wow!

According to the eulogy delivered at his memorial by his sister,  Steve Jobs on his deathbed looked at his sister, then at his children, then at his wife.  And then staring into the distance, his the last words before he died were “Wow! Wow! Wow!”

There are those who are convinced that he was seeing into the world beyond life.  I hope that may be so, although I myself think this conclusion still belongs in the realm of belief, not of proof.

But  Wow! does express my feelings about this incredible universe in which we live and have our being, and in which all that I am made of will exist for as long as the universe survives – which I expect to be into eternity.

In fact, I could not think of a better way to put it.

And if a triple Wow! are my last words, I believe that I would die in peace and joy.
