Oh My Heart: a talk on creativity

Hello! Just a quick note: I found this wonderful talk from the TED Conferences: Elizabeth Gilbert on Creativity

It’s an amazing talk by Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat, Pray, Love) on creativity and being an artist, writer, maker.

Even if you didn’t love the book, you need to watch this, and stay with it until the end, because the end really almost made me cry (with relief, with joy, with . . .), seriously.

I almost want to threaten: if you’re an artist, or a creator of any kind, you MUST watch this.

    So true – it’s a great TALK! I totally fell in love with it the first time I watched…and find it nice to listen to it again at times. Reminds me that creativity is a job…it doesn’t always come magically!

    Oh I saw this a few months back. Isn’t it the best? I loved everything she said.
