I want to share something that I find absolutely inspiring. It’s a TED Talk by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, on nurturing creativity. I know that it’s been around for a couple of years, so some of you may already be familiar with it. But, I think that the message she delivers about the creative expectations that artists place upon themselves (and that the world places upon them) is worth repeated viewings. In fact, I think it should be requiredviewing for anyone pursuing a career in the arts.
