Your Elusive Creative Genius

Elizabeth Gilbert 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.

About Caroll Atkins

Loving Designing Living!! All forms of design intrigue me. As a graphic designer, I design for my livelihood (C.A.SlyDesigns) but as a writer, I do it for my living! At this time in my life, I MUST write. LoveDesignLife, is my joy and my gift to you. If my articles resonate with you, I pray they will also help you in life much as living them and writing about them has helped me. Today, it is no longer about thinking outside of the box. It’s bigger!! It is all about “Transcending the sphere!” coined by yours truly. I work hard to accomplish my goals. However, if I ever fall short I don’t worry I just eat cake cause tomorrow is another day!!

    I am liking this before I even see it because I know this is going to be good. I LOVE her book, Eat, Pray, Love. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly suggest it! 🙂

    • I have and yes, I quite enjoyed it. I am looking for some great books to read this year, so feel free to suggest any you know of. I like your style so I am sure I would enjoy them as well.

      Peace & Light

        Oh there are so many books. Have you read any books by Donald Neale Walsch? I’m sure you have. I recently read a book he wrote, which is actually the last book in the Conversations with God series, on death. It’s really interesting.

      • Actually, I have not! I have heard of him though. I will be sure to put it on the list as I have heard of his books. Please give me the link to your books of poetry. I cannot find the post I saw with your book and where to purchase it. A link would be fantastic!

        *gasps* Oh you got to start with the first 3 books of Conversations with God then girl! Where have you been? lol I think you would absolutely love them. I call them my Bible (if I must have one lol). Anyway, you can read my poetry book (for free) @ It’s a teaser to the three poetry books that I’ll be releasing this year. I’m so excited about them but for now, you can get a glimpse into my poetic style and creative mind there. Thanks for the support! I hope you enjoy it.

      • Absolutely! I will share it on my FB fan page as well. I am looking forward to reading your poetry. It will be a treat! Oh I am on those books too, lol!

    I’ve never heard of her, or so I thought until she said she was the author of one of my favorite movies I never read the book…Great video. Thanks for sharing.
