Elizabeth Gilbert: A different way to think about Creative Genius

This talk which Gilbert gave at TED is brilliant. It resonated with me deeply and nearly brought me to tears! It makes such sense to me that the act of creating is a divine one, one that is outside of me and a part of me all at once. A collaboration and a conversation - just as Gilbert says. I hope you enjoy this talk too!

Do your stories come thundering down landscapes in trains of air to you too? :)

In the words of Charlie's sister Lola "That was extremely ridiculously wonderful."

This is what preachers have known for centuries. But our work is explicitly "Spirit" we know that inspiration is born in the midst of our "mulishness" and that most Sundays we are decidedly human. But we hope for a Sunday or two where "everything aligns" and people get a "glimpse of the divine." Perfect!
What a wonderful talk.

Thanks for sharing this Christin!
