Fifty People, One Question: Whats Your Favorite Memory?

As if I need another item on my to-do list (I do)....write down some of my favorite memories. Perfect timing as I head home to Illinois for some quality family time. Maybe we should all periodically ask ourselves -- does this (activity of which I am about to partake) have favorite-memory-making potential? If not, perhaps a re-evaluation is in order. Enjoy.

Telling Stories

I love TED talks for probably the same reason as most TED followers: story telling will never get old. People have been telling stories since the beginning of time - gathered around a fire, sharing stories with each other (a college professor told us that's why we're always drawn to the TV - we're hard-wired to its glow and its stories). This story is about how a white South African vineyard owner honored the history of the black South African workers on his farm and arranged for shared ownership of the vineyard.
