Not terribly inspirational... these power lines, but as previous photos attest they are a source of fascination to me for some reason. Perhaps because the simplicity of the form belies the magnitude and complexity of the product...perhaps due to variety of linear and cylindrical components...or even the contrast to the deep blue sky. No matter...as that is the only thing in my camera tonight!

We take for granted the generation of power (unless you lived through a storm or other condition with the loss of such), but we may not often consider our own power. How do we use our power to influence others? How do we measure the positive impact? What is needed to feed such energy? Conversations with students about e-teaching was a 'power'-ful charge that both fueled and provided feedback for future thinking....sparked by Diana Laufenberg's TEDxMidAtlantic talk, Embrace Failure - watch it and see if you don't find it powerful, as well.
