Usually we walk around constantly believing ourselves. "I’m okay" we say. "I’m alright". But sometimes the truth arrives on you and you can’t get it off. That’s when you realize that sometimes it isn’t even an answer ― it’s a question. Even now, I wonder how much of my life is convinced.

ted:

Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

Tatiana’s dedication, strength, spunk, friendliness and professionalism have infused the entire crew with a love for the show and a standard of working. She knows everyone’s names, says hello to everyone regardless of where they are on the so-called totem pole, is always kind and professional regardless of how exhausted she is, compliments everyone’s work and has garnered so much respect from everyone that no one would dare slack, because we all want to make the show be the best it can be for Tat[iana]. It’s really special, and she is really special. By Kathryn Alexandre about Tatiana Maslany (x)

When I first stepped on set for Season 2, I was in early that day and I was checking out what was going on, and it was a scene between Sarah and Kira … there have been moments where everybody is crying around the monitor after seeing what Tatiana can pull out. Usually people are too tired to care about that. You never see [that kind of reaction] in this business. By

I want to have Edna’s confidence

The thing is, she needs to be confident. She needs to be THE BEST so that the tragedies of her past don’t happen again. Why “No capes!”? She made those outfits. Her outfits are the reason that competent heroes died. She needs to be better than she was, better than she is, so she sets those standards for herself.

excuse u who gave you permission to give me emotions over edna mode

I never look back, darling, it distracts from the now.
