(plenty of people go hohumm about this book)
(I boldly declare I like it),
you might enjoy Elizabeth Gilbert’s thoughts on the creative process.
I know I do.
Maybe you’ll feel like gobbling, imbibing, EATING her words.
You might experience them as a PRAYER to creativity.
She might help you fall in LOVE
Here’s an interview from Books and Arts, Radio National.
Yup. It’s that Oz radio station again. The one I want to EAT, PRAY to and already do LOVE.
Elizabeth speaks of creative engagement as one of the most interesting relationships imaginable.
She sees creativity as
a relationship between human beings and the mysteries of inspiration.
The mysteries of inspiration. Yesssss.
Involvement with creativity is ‘the coolest way you can spend your life’.
Big Magic – Creative Living Beyond Fear is Elizabeth’s recent book. She’s also done terrific TED talks, but perhaps we’ll save that for another time.
Meanwhile, how about pondering, valuing, eating, praying, loving the MYSTERIES OF INSPIRATION.
And helping me name my mysterious play-in-progress.
