Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love”

Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of Eat, Pray, Love and Committed. She’s also a spectacular speaker, which you’ll realize when you visit TED (Technology Entertainment Design), the website with “ideas worth spreading.” TED offers over a thousand videotaped “talks to stir your curiosity.”

TED began in 1984 with a conference. The annual conference still continues, and I daresay that its web site has grown exponentially in popularity.

So, on TED, you’ll watch famous people as well as people you’ve never heard of on all kinds of topics.

So what I love about this particular talk is how Gilbert recounts poet Ruth Stone’s description of creative inspiration. It’s as if, she says, a “thunderous train of air” is blowing through the landscape, and you can see it and feel it. And if you don’t catch it (write it down) while it’s in your backyard, it’s going to blow away to the next artist, writer, poet.
