Several years ago, I read a book by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor entitled "My Stroke of Insight." Dr. Taylor is a neuroscientist, who at a ripe young age,experienced a serious stroke. She lost her brain, and her story is riveting reading.
One of the Matrix Magic Playbook blog followers e mailed the link to Dr. Taylor's Ted Talks speech. I recommend you take 19 minutes to view her presentation. Wise counsel for us all.
And thanks to C for sending in the link.
