This is a total gem of a talk. The more I discover of Elizabeth Gilbert, the more I completely admire and respect her work. I have to confess it was not always this way…and it was my youthful unknowing of which I have to blame. I read her memoir, Eat, Pray, Love, in my early 20s and could not grasp the enormity of what I was reading, the beauty in the rawness, the recovery, the growth, the beauty of a person becoming. I thought it was flaky and self-indulgent…beautifully and melodiously written, but self-indulgent. I picked it up again in my late 20s, and it start to cling to my spirit, making sense in entire chapters. Now, in my 30s, it has become achingly beautiful, an unexpected glimpse into Liz’s courageous account of making sense of herself at that exact period of her life, what gave her purpose + peace, and what lit her from within. And then I started tracking Liz Gilbert’s work and I find an extraordinary creative + person, who shares generously of herself, her experiences, and her work with people from all walks of life.

your elusive creative genius…catching that creation!
