A stroke of Inspiration...

I had received this book for Christmas. I am a fan of nonfiction and was looking forward to reading it on vacation. Interestingly, today on my favorite French blog, Tralalere! she posted a link to a talk given by Dr. Taylor at a TED conference in California. It is an eighteen minute presentation. 
If you want inspiration, motivation, and you have a belief in the inner spirit-
Oh and eighteen minutes! Please click HERE.
If you do- come back and let's compare notes. As usual, I have tears in my eyes.

Wow! Powerful insight and experience to have the two hemispheres of the brain demonstrate their very different powers.... the right brain's connection to the universe and the left to logic and detail. Also amazing that she survived the hemmorhage and experienced the damage intellectually! Interesting experience of dialing the phone!
