We will walk and talk about a specific TED Talk that has been "assigned" for viewing for each week. (Think book club but without all of the reading!) The walk itself will be similar to those we do on Thursdays, except slightly shorter. Please see any "Thursday Evening Stroll" for details about the walk itself.
If you are not familiar with TED, you can check out the site at http://www.ted.com/. We will take recommendations for future talks; please post them to this discussion or tell us at one of the walks. When you recommend a walk, we ask that you also recommend a date and/or tell us your availability so that we can schedule your suggestion on an evening that you will be there. If your recommended talk is selected, please make every effort to attend that evening's walk.
In honor of the New Year's holiday, we are going to try something different this week. There will be no assigned TED Talk, but there is a question for you to ponder and discuss with the group.
The question is... What would you like to have happen in your life in 2013?
For some this may be a new year's resolution, for others it may be a simple goal, and for others it may be a more complex goal and/or a list of items. It could even be a nebulous sort of "I wish my life looked like this". It doesn't matter the form, just tell us what you would like to see in your life in 2013.
The goal is not just for us to each think about what we want, but also to get us talking so we can share ideas and maybe spark new ideas for each other. That being said, even if you don't have a clear idea of what you want, you can contribute by listening to others' ideas and/or by bringing your as-yet-unformed ideas to the discussion.
You get bonus points if you have any ideas about how you might bring this thing(s) into your life!
Happy New Year!
Tina, Alan [masked]), and Eric
