TED Talk for December

For the final TED Tuesday of 2013, we showed a Talk given by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love. Elizabeth talked about creativity and how we use the term “genius” and “brilliant” incorrectly when it is applied to art and artists. Her suggestion is that instead of calling an artist a “genius,” that we go back to the ancient idea of saying that they “have a genius.”
