Elizabeth Gilbert: A New Way To Think About Creativity
Commentary by Maggie Christian
There is a lot to be said about Elizabeth Gilbert’s Talk but it is better to just listen to the video. She says it best about the magical world of creativity and muses and genius and the poems and paintings and songs and all pertinent art swirling around the world in ethereal space looking for the right artist to bring their creation into fruition. She is amusing and brilliant and insightful and an enjoyable, lively speaker as well as writer. Take the 20 minutes out of your time to hear what an audience listening to her on the edge of their seats to every whimsical and creative word she has to say on being or having a genius and what creativity is or might be.
