Illustration Friday | Vocal

This is an old illustration, but I think it works for this week's topic.  I also like it because it made me think of a book I've been hearing a lot about lately -- Quiet: The Power of Introverts by Susan Cain.  Being an introvert myself, I though it raised some really interesting points.  The author was the presenter at a recent Ted Talk.  It's definitely worth watching!

Esta é uma ilustração antiga, mas acho que também se adapta ao tema desta semana.  Também gosto dela porque me faz pensar num livro que tenho ouvido falar muito -- Quiet: The Power of Introverts de Susan Cain.  Eu me considero introvertida, e o livro parece muito interessante.  A autora foi a apresentadora numa recente Ted Talk.  Vale a pena assistir (pode-se colocar legendas em português)!
