May 01, 2008 A must-watch about life. Have you checked out TED yet (Technology, Entertainment, Design)? I am pretty sure I have linked it from here before. Maybe to this one? Their mission is to simply spread ideas. And I am all for continuing life and creative education. Stephanie linked me to this talk by Jill Bolte Taylor: it is definitely worth your time to check it out. #Inspiration, #Scrapbooking Tweet Previous Next Related Posts Week In The Life™ 2015 | Getting Ready Spark Your Story | Scrapbook & Cards Today Winter 2016 Spark Your Story | Scrapbook & Cards Today Spring 2016 Sign in or sign up to comment. 12 thoughts Karen says… 05/01/2008 Ali, thanks for sharing that link. Strokes run in my family (mother & grandfather) & I lost my best friend two years ago to a brain aneurysm. Jill's words about her experience were riveting, & I never would have heard them were it not for your blog. Thanks. Reply 0 Replies Sign in or sign up to comment.

I studied anatomy & physiology and NEVER looked at our brain function this way. I have a child with hemiplasia & NEVER looked at brain function this way. I am speechless & so grateful.

Such smart and caring people, it's a treasure they share it with us. I watched Jill's speech a month ago, and I cried, cried, cried! So moving and so hopeful.

SmilynStef says… 05/03/2008 I had to smile when I saw this (since I am a Stephanie who has been sharing this post with my friends ... but not the Stephanie in your post). I mentioned to my husband several weeks ago that I realized when I'm in my studio creating (right brain) all of the work chatter in my head stops (left brain). I've tried all sorts of meditative techniques over the years to stop the chatter, but none have worked like getting immersed in creating. Then when I watched her video, it all made sense.

Her observations of how captivated she was by the sensory experiences mediated by her right brain reminded me/ made me wonder if that is how people with autism perceive the world. (Waves of sensation, not knowing where their own physical boundaries are relative to the energy around them, etc..) So interesting to hear that experience described by someone who understands the neuroscience so well! I will definitely be sharing this link. Thanks! Reply 0 Replies Sign in or sign up to comment.
