The Marvelous Emily Levine

I found Emily on TED Talks. She is linked on our "Links.." page. But this is a different different one and includes her voice reading a favorite poem called "You Can't Have It All...but There is This" by Barbara Ras. I hope you enjoy it. The poem is embedded in the article which comes from a blog authored by one of Emily's friends and titled Brain Pickings. Here's a direct... Read more →
