Big Magic

For those who wish to live a more creative life, I cannot recommend Elizabeth Gilbert's new book Big Magic enough. She states:

 "To even call somebody a 'creative person' is almost laughably redundant; creativity is a hallmark of our species... your very body and your very being are perfectly designed to live in collaboration with inspiration, and inspiration is still trying to find you—the same way it hunted down your ancestors." 

As someone whose job and identity is so strongly tied to creativity, I found it her insights into inspiration refreshing. While some days creativity comes easily, others it is quite elusive. I hope that I will be able to embrace creativity in new ways & keep Elizabeth's knowledge in mind as I persist in making. Because I really wouldn't know any other way. (Also check out this amazing video of how they created the book cover! Who knew.)
