Has a TED Talk ever influenced you? How?
You have recently experienced a major loss in your life yet you will bring so much optimism and hope to all of through the TED venues and sharing of ideas. I continually find that sharing various TED talks in my classes and workshops provides the kind of perspective that all of need to have now and in the future. Often it is not one talk but the threads through many talks that weave differently for each of us. My tapestry will be different that yours but yet common elements and threads. Thanks for providing a platform from which we can weave our tapestries.
