22654_254x191 Thanks to the Amazing Rando for showing me the video library on the TED website.

In the coming weeks, I will post a video each Sunday for your enjoyment and enlightenment. I’m starting with Isabel Allende, who teaches with every word.

As described on the TED website:

In one of the most beloved talks from TED2007, novelist Isabel Allende
talks about writing, women, passion, feminism. She tells the stories of
powerful women she has known, some larger-than-life (listen for a
beauty tip from Sophia Loren), and some simply living with grace,
dignity and ingenuity in a world that, in too many ways, still treats
women unjustly.

About Isabel Allende
Novelist Isabel Allende writes stories of passion. Her novels and memoirs, including The House of the Spirits and Eva Luna, tell the stories of women and men who live with passionate commitment — to love, to their world, to an ideal.
