My friend Jesse shared this TED video and I was really struck by its interesting inquiry into (that is a lot of “in” words!) the nature of creativity. In the time of the Greeks creativity was something one was possessed by and “had” as in came from something outside of ourselves. Nowadays we talk about people  “being” a genius, as if they are the “soul” cause of it. She also notes a new way of thinking about the idea of “struggling artist.”  Enjoy!
