“Aren’t you afraid you’ll never have any success? Aren’t you afraid that the humiliation of rejection will kill you? Aren’t you afraid that you’ll work your whole life in this craft and nothing’s ever gonna come of it and that you’re gonna die on a scrap heap of broken dreams with your mouth filled with bitter ash of failure?”

-- from the 18 minute talk given by Elizabeth Gilbert on TED

I am an ardent fan of TED. (Obviously, since I’ve been posting some videos from that site on this blog.) I find myself at least once a week going back to this site and discovering pots of gold of thoughts and views from mega-uber thinkers and doers… and it’s simply fantastic. It jolts me to wakening when I find myself in the doldrums of creativity and how apt that I find these words of Elizabeth Gilbert that made me think, “Hmm, yeah. She does have a point there.”



I promised a wallpaper for Dr. Rob who checks my blog out. Here's one for you Rob and hope you like it.

To the others, feel free to grab it. Again, just click, copy and paste. Cheers!
