The big one for Steve Jobs? Let’s hope not!

Today, we hear the news that Steve Jobs is taking leave of absence from Apple, on medical grounds. This is the second time; and, last time, his illness was extremely serious.

While hoping that this is much less serious, I am unfortunately reminded of the proverb in “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho:

Everything that happens once can never happen again.
But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time.

Let’s hope not and wish Steve Jobs all the very bestĀ for a full recovery!
