Being Grateful

I have not posted on my blog in a while but given that this is fitting is oddly fitting.  As I am writing this my grandfather is moments away from passing.  He has been very influential in my life; he was the one who first introduced me to fixing computers in the early 1990’s.  He started my spark of curiosity of technology.  For those of you who know me well, know I am obsessed with learning and using technology.

He also was always excited about fixing things and tinkering.  He was an avid craftsman, and built many pieces of furniture.  By trade he programmed/ran/maintained CNC mills and he was the best in his company at it.

I’ve had a missed opportunity, so many times I could have thanked him for all the inspiration and knowledge he imparted on me.

He is too far gone for me to say my final farewell, his breathing very faint and sporadic. So this post has to suffice.  A parting note, please take a moment and thank the people in your life who have inspired you.  They are few and far in between.
