I n t i m a c y with my truth | Today was the much-anticipated all-day #TedXOakland event. There are actually too many ideas going through my head for my tiny mind to process. Much that challenged, much that opened my eyes, much that I admired for the speakers' courage even if I wasn't gripped by it and a whole lot that I disagreed with. It was important to me to show up for this inaugural event in My Oakland and come a step closer to intimacy with my truth.
.
After the craziness of the day, we (@cottonturner and I) carried on the discussions at my place.
.
This spirit of carrying on the debate long into the future is what makes this event so special. TedX wasn't just a pleasant way of spending a few hours. It's a movement for the community to continue to be inspired by. It's a springboard for all kinds of new ideas and ways of understanding to emerge, and yes it's OK to think differently and to disagree. This is such a valuable and vital addition to Oakland's ever-changing cultural and social landscape and I hope it continues next year and for years to come.

Left the camera at home today but the picture is bit of an abstract one with gorgeous colors taken here in Oakland ☺️
