In Praise of Complexity

TEDxMet on 9/26 was filled with complexity, tenderness, and compassion. And art, of course! Over the next few weeks I'll share one talk or performance a day. It was a tremendous pleasure to work with the speakers, each of whom put their hearts into their talks and brought the audience to laughter and tears.

I'll start today with the start to the day, a complex, beautiful and thought-provoking talk by novelist Susan Fales-Hill, who says "History is therapy for nations. If you lie your way through therapy, you're going to remain mentally ill." Susan offered a brave and moving open to TEDxMet on Saturday. She told her own story, and wove connections to our founding fathers and the current controversy over "Go Set a Watchman."
