This is part of a small series of my favorite creative posts and videos on "art" while I am away. The previous post is here. You may have seen this video before. It's quite popular on You Tube. If so, then you probably want to watch it again. And if not, you are in for a treat!
In this famous TedTalk, Elizabeth Gilbert talks about the challenge of living up to your "elusive creative genius." She describes her own difficulty of writing her next book after the mega-bestselling phenomenon of Eat, Pray, Love—and what she has learned about the true nature of genius.
My favorite parts are when she describes the poet who catches her poems in the air as they rush by...and how an audience of long ago is transported by the dancers onstage to glimpse God.
