art & life

This section comes from my heart. It is at once and ode to the art of everyday living, a praise of ordinariness,what caught my attention, food for thought, images of my observations from nature which is for me an inestimable teacher. It is also nourished  by ideas and ways of seeing, favored excerpts collected from my readings. This section is to share. I have no agenda other than sharing what resonate on the sinuous path of inner quest and transformation.
 

 

Creativity and the myth of the genius artist

 

Thanks to Thérèse Chabot who send me a link to American author Elizabeth Gilbert’s talk about creativity and the myth of the genius artist. I really enjoyed the lecture, Elizabeth Gilbert’s humour and wit in discussing the artist persona.
