Creative genius

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything across Italy, India and Indonesia, invites us to think of the concept as genius as the ancients did. Geniuses are not people, but rather more like a muse. We all have a genius; the trick is to learn how to capture it. Watch this TED talk when you feel that the well of creativity is running dry. (Oh, and she's funny, too.)

Wow. I will never cease to be amazed at the gifts of language conferred on writers. I'm so glad there are people with gifts like yours and Cara's. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.
