TED Talks

So, whenever I get a stab at the TV remote which is rare around my place  since I live with a guy, I love to turn on TED Talks.

Deep Conversations

Since I was in the area, I wanted to visit Yolanda and the family. I contacted them and made plans to spend the day with them. I was excited because Yolanda told me I would get to meet some of their children. On the way over to their house I got into a deep conversation with Steve on the phone about fears.
