A different way to think about creative genius: Elizabeth Gilbert on

Stumbled onto this video about creativity from TED 2009.
 I found this video to be inspirational. It is a bit long but worth it!
Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat, Pray, Love) muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses -- and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk. (Recorded February 2009 in Long Beach, California. Duration: 19:29.)
