Elizabeth Gilbert: Your Elusive Genius


From Sharon:

In my ruminations on the discussion [on James Hillman and active imagination] I remembered a TED Talk by Elizabeth Gilbert, a writer.  It’s about 20 minutes long. In the first seven minutes she’s giving some background to what she wants to offer. Then she talks about the daimon, and she gives some fascinating examples of other writers’ experiences.  In light of our discussion, what she’s talking about can apply to much, much more than writing.

    Sharon, thank you for your Jan 14 ‘gift’ Way ‘down under’ in Australia – it felt as if you had wrapped Elizabeth Gilbert’s talk just for me.

      Catherine, perhaps, in one of life’s many mysterious ways, it was meant especially for you. However you found it (or it found you), you obviously appreciated the wisdom of her message. Thanks for taking the time to post your comment.
