ipopin - Kirsten Harrell

The trail takes us along to Kirsten Harrell writing at ipopin where she says in her bio:

I am a psychologist with a passion for the power of positive thinking and maintaining a positive attitude! I am a consultant and coach with expertise in the areas of mind-body therapies, stress management, quantum psychology, and peak performance. I created ipop-ins with Traci Harrell, my sister and business partner, as a way to bring the power of positive thinking to people on the go.

What are ipop-ins?

Ipop-ins are one minute attitude boosters that bring the power of positive thinking to people on the go. Ipop-in a new attitude today.

She writes about Sir Ken Robinson's presentation at TED:

Sir Robinson talked about public education system and the idea that we educate our children out of their creativity. He points out that public education throughout the world is organized hierarchically - with arts at the bottom. Sir Robinson suggests that we need to change our educational system and begin to educate children's whole beings. We need to honor creativity and the arts. We need to honor all the ways children learn and honor all of their talents - not just the left-brained academic talents.

She writes about dirty car art:

If you like art, you might want to check out Scott Wade's Dirty Car Art! Really... it is amazing what this guy can do with a dirty car window! He's got some talent. Scott travels on a mile and a half of dirt road to get to his house, so his car gets rather dirty on a regular basis. Instead of seeing this as a nuisance or a pain in the butt as many of us would, Scott saw an opportunity - an opportunity to turn messy dirt into beautiful art! Imagine driving behind a car that looked like this - wouldn't it make you smile?
