The local newspaper stopped by our farm to speak to us about our new therapeutic riding center, HeartsTRC, LLC. The news is no longer just print on paper. In the time of the internet and multimedia, the reporter wanted a video clip to post on the news website. Although many people are reluctant to speak on camera, I have to speak in front of a room full of students on a daily basis and giving an impromptu speech happens to be one of my specialties (or so I am told), so I volunteered to take the plunge. After a few minutes preparing what I wanted to say, I was ready to accept the challenge. My students would probably tell you that the real challenge is getting me to stop talking! I am not one for chitchat or idle conversation, but if it is about science or horses, I have a lot to say. Enjoy!
So how long does 15 minutes of fame last in the era of the internet?
Is it sped up to 15 seconds or extended to infinity?
Let's hope for positive feedback and comments and a limited number of observations that mention that I look or sound like I am twelve. Wouldn't be the first time!
