I gave a talk on being a caregiver at TEDx Ubud on May 28, 2016. The talk is now on You Tube and you can see it here:
People asked me afterwards what it was like to stand in front of an audience and speak intimately about my life as a caregiver. As with many events in my life, this one had a life of its own. I did the work and followed along. Yes, I had to push myself beyond my fear of public speaking but the rest felt fluid. The script seemed to write itself. The memorization was surprisingly easy.
My creativity is much like that too. Inspiration comes and I follow. I find it difficult to conjure up the creative spirit – it conjures me.
I’ll be posting soon with some of our latest creations and new directions we are going in here at ‘World on a String’.
In the meantime check out my book, Piece by Piece: Love in the Land of Alzheimer’s. The story is much more than about Alzheimer’s. It’s a terrific love story and a travel adventure as well. You can find it on Amazon at:
