This blog talks about ideas that catch my fancy: TED talks, books (including TED Book Club selections), movies (especially Hot Docs documentaries), travel, and other interesting things I read or hear about.

Sarah Kay - Spoken Word Poet at TED 2011
The session was called Beauty, Imagination and Enchantment. And Sarah Kay enchanted the audience. The youngest speaker at 22, Sarah has been doing spoken word poetry since she was 14. I loved her expression that she showed up to each poem with a backpack full of experiences! At 22, it was probably a relatively small backpack.
This camera angle shows the glorious backdrop on the stage, which had different images projected on it for each different session at TED2011.
