A New Story

It’s sunrise in New York. I am writing this from my hotel room, hours before the curtain goes up on TEDx Broadway.

Last night, I snagged last minute tickets to The Book of Mormon. Terrific show! It lived up to every Tony it won.

I couldn’t help feeling uplifted by its deeper themes about America: even when the chips are down, even when we are lost and have no idea what to do next, we are always able to tell ourselves a new story. It keeps us hopeful. And hope is always magnetic.

I am thrilled to be a part of TEDx Broadway. And I thank Chris Anderson, curator of the TED Conference, for being hopeful enough about the future of ideas to dedicate a business to it.

And look where that has taken him. And taken all of us.

Wish me luck…oops, I mean “break a leg.”
