We listened to this talk given by Elizabeth Gilbert – author of Eat, Pray, Love at the TED conference in February and were deeply moved by her words – her sentiment and her approach.  She speaks of the anguish, the suffering of the artist and how we have all come to accept that as the plight of the artist.  She however refuses, and takes us back to ancient times where we spoke of artists having a genius rather than being a genius – removing the burden on feeling like we don’t measure up.  She acknowledges the genius, the light, the divinity – which reminded us of the sentiment of Namaste which we wrote about recently.  It all came full circle for us – and hope you enjoy it as much we did.
