Fresh-baked bread. Elegant design. A nap on the couch with my cat. The work of Aaron Sorkin. My husband’s laugh. Summer picnics with family. A great board game with friends. Irreverent humor. Great speeches. New technology.
“I know kung fu.” Neo says this after his first training session in The Matrix. The teacher in me lives for moments like that.
Jim Henson influences me every day. Most people remember him for Sesame Street and the Muppets, and I love those, too, but what most inspires me about his life is the way he never stopped reaching for the next great idea. He never stopped trying to make the world better. And he always did it with a gentle heart. I hope to do the same.
