TEDWomen was an idea-hurricane, an inspiration-avalanche, a brainwave tsunami, a tornado of provocation and stimulation, a force of nature – if nature wore high heels – a force to be reckoned with, a thing to make your heart pound and thrum and swell and your head throb from the magnificent pressure of all those ideas, all those amazing, inspiring ideas.
It was impossible to be there and be unmoved, unchanged. I took notes.
It will take me days to process it all, to distill even a fraction of it into coherent thoughts and workable ideas. But I will. If only to ease the pressure on my brain, and slow the pounding of my heart, I will.
After I sleep for forty hours, that is.
