Another great article on synesthesia can be found here on the NPR website. For those of you who have read my earlier posts about it, I have the grapheme-color (also recently called ideathesia) kind of synesthesia. The only time it really hampers me is when I have to type random alpha-numeric codes. Then I have to type one-fingered, sometimes with one eye shut. Ha! I can't imagine how disruptive tasting sounds and images would be!
Thanks for reading!
…at least according to Philippe Petit.
I've seen this video before, and stumbled across it again this morning. I encourage you to read this great article about Philippe on Brainpickings as well.
A lifelong autodidact (self-taught person), he was always curious and did not stop to think that he shouldn't (or couldn't) learn a certain skill. His joy for life just gushes—you can see it in the video.
What do you get THAT excited about? Maybe THAT's what you should be doing. With a little passion, faith, tenacity, and intuition mountains can be moved. The impossible isn't.

Good juju-spreader, speaker, graphic designer. I'd love to hear from you!
