Snap. Crackle. And Pop.

TShakes,

 

I apologize for being tardy on my Sunday emails, but I do hope that everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. I've been obsessed with pictures ever since I was a little girl. I loved being in front of the camera as a child, and as I grew older, I appreciated the things that took life behind the optical lens. Pictures have a tendency to capture our most intimate moments, whether they be filled with happiness, sorrow, or beauty. Through pictures, we are able to connect with places, people, and things that we would have never had the opportunity, or perhaps never would have given a second thought.  I guess you can say that pictures transcend through the barriers that we humans put up.  That being said, I found a couple of TED videos that not only struck a cord within me, but made me think of my life and ultimately, my death. "The end is implicit in the beginning," a friend once told me.  Although a scary notion for me, it is nonetheless still beautiful and precious.

Louis Schwartzberg: Nature. Beauty. Gratitude.

Candy Chang: Before I die, I want to _____.

I'm curious to find out what kind of thoughts do these two TED videos invoke within you?

 

... now onto some house keeping items:

1. TEDxSugarland is this Sunday for all those that would like an experience of what TEDx is like. Tickets are still available and the link is on our website.

2. Our "Second Sunday" meeting is the following Sunday, and we have only 8 spots available.

3. Eric suggested that we add another meeting per month for those that would like to just have a "coffee chat" on various TED videos and subjects (like the ones that we initally had). He posted his suggestion on the discussion's page for ya'lls input. I'm definitely up for it!

 

Regards,

 

JC
