Tread Softly

I know, I know, you've already seen Sir Ken Robinson's latest TED talk, but I want to have it here on my blog:





together with this wonderful poem by W.B. Yeats:

HAD I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams



.....'because every day, everywhere, our children spread their dreams beneath our feet. And we should tread softly!'

I hadn't, and still haven't! Who has 20 minutes free to sit down and watch something when they are at their computer?? Bring on podcasts TED!!

I know what you mean, Alex....
2 minutes is the maximum I give a video... but with some videos you don't notice the time and it's usually worth it....
