I was home sick yesterday and discovered Ted.com, a site with enlightening speakers, people who make a difference, speaking for less than 20 minutes on a subject. I had heard of Ted talks before, but never seem to have 'free time' to listen to self-improvement or mind-stretching things like this. Too many groceries to buy and socks to wash. I concentrated yesterday on writers. The one by Amy Tan was amazing. She was hilarious. Every minute was some deep concept or tongue in cheek statement that made you think. I listened to J.K.Rowling, Ray Bradbury, and a few other writers. Next time I go there I'm going to search on 'humor' because there is nothing better than a good hard laugh. Out loud. It cures most things that you might be ailing of and wandering over to Ted.com to find a cure is not a bad idea at all. Not at all. Try it next time you are feeling less than whole:

So why live here? Well the advantage we have over California or South Carolina or one of the other eternal spring states, is that we let spring attack us with joy here. We can barely believe our luck that a cold wind isn't trying to down that row of red tulips. Look at them, so red.
Hope thy name is springtime.
