A Father’s Suit

“There are thousands, perhaps million of suits in young men’s closets, waiting again for a tailor’s touch to reconcile, when possible, the trace of the father to the body of the son. And then there is the touch, the over-familiar yet comforting hand that pats down the shoulders and smooths the back when a man puts on his altered suit for the first time. The soothing contacts slips and melds into the reverie: I am wearing my father’s suit. And the customer may not know it, but the tailor touches him in a doting, gentle manner he may not have felt since childhood.”~JJ Lee

Extremely Touching Words From The Late Steve Jobs To His Wife


Translation: “We didn’t really know each other twenty years ago. We were guided by our intuition. You have transported me on a little cloud. It snowed when we got married in Ahwahnee. Years have passed, children have arrived. There have had good moments, difficult moments, never bad moments. Our love has lasted and has grown. We have lived through quite a lot together and here we are, back to where we were twenty years ago-a lot older, a lot wiser-with wrinkles on our faces and in our hearts. We have known, today, a little more on the joy of existence, the sufferings, the secrets, the wonders…and we are always together. I would never have changed a thing.”~Steve Jobs

A Simple Quote

“Every great chef cooks in their head. They taste in their head. They present food in their mind. They dream about food.” ~Claudio Aprile

This quote is not only just a criterion to evaluate the greatness of a chef, but it also speaks to the truth of a career, which is built upon one’s authentic passion. Career isn’t a synonym of job, though many can’t differentiate between them. Career is all about living out professionally one’s passion, while job is just a means, through which one’s day-to-day living can be earned in a money-driven world.

When we live out our passion according to heart’s desire, we can’t help but be made to feel inspired and happy all the time, because we feel it, because we know it, because we think about it, because we daydream about it. Creativity, then, flows.

A Life Transformative Poem By Portia Nelson

Chapter I

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk
I fall in.
I am lost … I am helpless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter II

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter III

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in … it’s a habit … but,
my eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

Chapter IV

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

Chapter V

I walk down another street.
