That's right, amigos, Cadbury eggs aren't just for Easter anymore! And though Greta swears the oozing green filling tastes like melted mint chocolate chip ice cream. I think they taste pretty much the same as the sugary yellow and white Cadbury goodness we've all come to love (or loathe!) over the years. Except for the fact that they're, you know, a sickly green color!
They say that when one door closes another one opens, and I guess the same thing could be said about blogs. This week we are finally closing the doors on our original Make.See.Eat.Do blog — which started all this bloggy awesomeness way back in 2007 — just in time to open the door to the official “reboot” of our Planet Greta photo blog.
And lest you think I pushed Greta into the internet video making biz, let me assure you that the entire venture was her idea. Well, except for the name, which wasn’t as sparkly and girlie as she wanted, but, seemed like a perfect fit for all the crazy stuff she wants to highlight on her “show.”
I already posted a couple of pics and a very cool video of a deeply-moving commencement speech that Steve Jobs gave at Stanford in 2005 on our sister blog, so, thought I’d break it up a little and post my favorite quote from the speech here.
“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose…you are already naked, there is no reason not to follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs
Man, just imagine all the amazing shit we could get done if we stopped caring what other people think and forged our own path through life. Steve Jobs didn’t just talk about changing things up and thinking different, he lived it. And the world, and my life for sure, is a better place because of it.
Thanks again for everything you did to make our world a much cooler and truly magical place, Mr. Jobs. You will be greatly missed…
