TEDx Orange Coast: Niia Bertino Singing Text Message

by Lindy

It was honor to be able to attend last Friday’s TEDx Orange Coast at Segerstrom Hall in Costa Mesa (thanks to the awesome promo from OC PRSA).

The opening ‘talk’ was from singer Niia Bertino, who actually borrowed a guy’s cell phone from the audience and sang his text message conversation thread. It was so hilarious, yet her song made it touching and beautiful too.

I am psyched I found someone captured it and uploaded it to You Tube so I can share it. Enjoy!

Ted Talk: How a Boy Became an Artist

by Lindy

Ted Talks are absolutely awesome; if you’ve never watched one, you should; immediately. Especially this one by children’s book author and illustrator, Jarrett J. Krosoczka: How a Boy Became an Artist.

It is so inspiring to hear him recount the path he took to realize his dreams and artistic aspirations. Though he experienced some difficult circumstances in his life, Jarrett persevered. Through his talk, he exhibits a great sense of humor and a compelling way with words. It’s apparent that his life story has touched many people’s lives just by the numerous glowing comments on the video.

One of the best quotes from the talk: “I use my imagination for my full time job; my imagination saved my life.”

For me, being creative is very therapeutic and supremely divine. Perhaps I will showcase my clever children’s stories I wrote in elementary school and put some of the ones I’ve told verbally down on paper someday…

More About Jarrett’s J. Krosoczka

Jarrett J. Krosoczka has been a storyteller since the ripe age of eight, when he wrote his first book, The Owl Who Thought He Was The Best Flyer, about an owl who challenged Hermes to a flying race. Since that rather promising start Krosoczka has published 18 picture books and graphic novels for children, including the much-loved Lunch Lady series, which is a two-time winner of the Children’s Choice Book Award. Krosoczka hosts The Book Report with JJK on Sirius XM’s Kids Place Live, a radio show about books, aimed at kids 10 and younger. In 2010 he founded the Joseph and Shirley Krosoczka Memorial Youth Scholarships at Worcester Art Museum, to fund classes for young and underprivileged aspiring artists.


Eat, Pray, Love AND Create

by Lindy

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the best-selling memoir, turned movie, Eat, Pray, Love spoke brilliantly at a Ted Talk on “Your Elusive Creative Genius” in Long Beach, California in 2009.

It is so insightful, authentic, inspirational and motivational. It certainly sheds new light on the creative process and the origins of creativity. Gilbert’s talk is described as:

Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses — and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person “being” a genius, all of us “have” a genius. — Ted.com

Some of her wonderful quotes that stand out in this Ted Talk are:

“‘Ole!’ to you, just for having the sheer human love and stubbornness to keep showing up.”

“I have had work or ideas come through me from a source that I honestly cannot identify. What is that thing? And how are we to relate to it in a way that will not make us lose our minds, but, in fact, might actually keep us sane?”

“Maybe [artistry] doesn’t have to be quite so full of anguish if you never happened to believe, in the first place, that the most extraordinary aspects of your being came from you. But maybe if you just believed that they were on loan to you from some unimaginable source for some exquisite portion of your life to be passed along when you’re finished … it starts to change everything.”
