Elizabeth Gilbert: A new way to think about creativity

Elizabeth Gilbert’s talk at TED about genius.  Watch it.  It goes to the heart of what makes a life engaging, interesting and bearable: passion.  And what is most profound is her understanding that everyone has it, that everyone has a spark inside them that is creative and special.  It is a theme that goes back to Artistotle, and which is easily forgotten and beaten out of people by the judgements and exigencies of life.
