I don't even own an iPhone or iPad, the newer revolutions. My hero-worship began long before that. My life would not have traveled the same path without his vision. Years before Apple overturned the music industry, the Mac did the same for graphic design and printing. When I graduated from college in the 90s, a design studio involved a large office, including a darkroom, heavy equipment, and toxic chemicals. Remember the smell of the wax machine, then cleaning our hands with Bestine? Within a few short years, all of these things fit into an elegant little box. This changed everything for self-employed designers. An almost zero overhead business. The design business was a satisfying career. But more importantly, it carried me to what I'm doing now. It subsidized my growing obsession with pottery, with money and a flexible schedule. And the know-how to run a small business. Oh, and it bought the house that holds the pottery studio. Another almost zero overhead business. A blessed life, and a dream come true.
