Shift Happens

Yesterday I surfed into a strange I-port and found an amazing thing: an embedded slide show with lots of facts about our changing world. This slide show was the winner of this year's World's Best Presentations contest at Rather than describe it to you, I'm embedding it so you can view it right here or click over to the Slideshare site.

You may find it disturbing. You may find it exciting. I hope you find it provides a compelling reason to tell your stories about your own life, because this slide show will convince you to write lots of stories about life as you have known it. Click on the single right arrow to play.

You may want to write a story about your feelings, or an essay on your thoughts after viewing this slide show. Have any of the types of change covered in the slide show affected your life, recently or longer ago? How do you feel about the changes it outlines? How do you generally feel about and handle change? Have you learned anything worth passing on?

Write on,
