Distilled by Parkinson’s

In May 2015, poet Robin Morgan gave a TED talk that woke me up. She had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and wrote poems full of life and humor and insight. Who but a poet would say of a disease like that, “I do not feel diminished by Parkinson’s; I feel distilled by it, and I actually like very much the woman I’m distilling into.”

Whether you or a friend or family member is dealing with Parkinson’s or any other health or life challenge, you will find inspiration in this talk.
