NancyG brought to my consciousness this point. I see greens. green grass, spinach, olive drab, green white board marker… but I do not see green-light green. Thus, those who don’t suffer color deficiency see a shade of green, but they can never show it to me. She also wants to go to a site to see what we ‘special’ peeps see … I’ll have to look into that for her!
I L O V E TED TALKS!!!!! “Ideas worth spreading” You should too, by now. Check this one out titled “Making political change with pen and paper” from Omar Ahmad.

Another one I listened to/watched this morning dealt with simplicity. The fellow wrapped up with a comment about how making something great isn’t really about having nothing left to add to it, but nothing left to remove from it.

wow – who would have guessed they actually existed? I knew I presumed I was dreaming…
