After I played this video in a workshop setting we went outside to find fragments that would speak to us and provide some fresh direction about life and purpose. It proved to be a moving session. The broken pieces of plastic electrical tubing I found lying amid a part of the place that remained a bit of a wasteland spoke to me of having been broken. They reminded me that while they had served their purpose and could no longer contribute I could mend those bits within that had been broken.
Elizabeth Gilbert’s talk about nurturing creativity is well worth listening to.
As an aside this image of a winged genius facing a woman with a tambourine and mirror, is from southern Italy, about 320 BC.
Contemplate the notion of Genius that Gilbert presents. Consider how ‘your genius’ manifests itself and influences your daily life.
