Eat Pray Love and talk to your Genius

Categories: Categorie 1 |

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat Pray Love", gives a Ted Talk about how to nurture our creative vocations.  She looks to the ancient Greeks and Romans who believed it was the daemon (Greek) or genius (Roman) who helped the artist create.  This certainly takes the load off our shoulders.  As Tom Waits says, according to Elizabeth, to his own genius, "Please come back later, can't you see I'm driving?"!

The Renaissance model of the genius in the head is now passé…
