a grand new perspective

Elizabeth Gilbert is my new heroine.

I was visiting John August's site ( to have a poke around as you do, and he posted this:

saying this:
Terrific talk by Elizabeth Gilbert from the TED series. Nineteen minutes well spent.

So I spent it. I got so much more than I bargained for.

I think when the full weight of this talk sinks in, I will view it as the best 19 minutes I've spent on my writing or any creative endeavor I've undertaken. Or perhaps it's that I've been the subject of the undertaking. I don't only relate to what she said, I feel lifted from intense burden and have been given the freedom to view the creative process in a magical new light. Ole, Elizabeth Gilbert. You bloody rock.
