You Have a Genius Too!

I must be the last person on earth who STILL hasn't read "Eat Pray Love". Yes yes, I'm getting round to it. After watching this inspiring video of Elizabeth Gilbert, the author, talk about having a creative genius... now I'm even more amped to go out and get her book.

It is a funny, beautiful and moving talk on inspired creativity. Long, but worth it. Especially like the part about the 90 year old poet catching hers.


  1. hi! Sorry I've never commented on your blog (since you so kindly visit mine). I saw the author on Oprah and thought she was very interesting. Then I read the book. Or I tried to read the book. I got through 40 pages of it and couldn't stop yelling out loud because of how annoyed I was. But I seem to be in the minority. Others rave over it. I'll be interested to read about your reaction to it.

    It's not the theme of the book that bugged me, it was her voice. Too drama queen for me (this coming from a drama queen. hmmm).

  2. Hey Liz! Nice to see you here. Haha - perhaps it's the "mirror effect"... what you dislike in yourself, you dislike in others too. But I like that you're a drama queen coz you've got a sense of humour about it.

    Once I get round to reading the book, I'll be sure to let you know what I thought. :)
