Anatomy and Art

Today I found myself seated next to someone who works with the TED conferences on a plane.  TED has for a long time now held a special place in my heart.  There are so very many fascinating presentations happening there.  But I think I am most partial to the conferences for being a force of cross pollination of ideas amongst fields.  This is a concept that so often gets lost amongst varying specializations.  But the truly innovative and groundbreaking work being done in any field always seems to come back to inspiration from an outside source.  Even in our personal lives, it is so often when we lay our thoughts down for a bit and let our minds travel to other matters that we come up with our most inspired solutions and innovations.

If you haven’t visited the TED site before, I recommend you take a look now…

And if you find yourself stuck in a rut with whatever you may be doing, I recommend taking even just half an hour to change the scene, read about something completely different, change settings, talk to someone with insights different than your own.  In short, take in new information.  It might just do you some good.
