Magical Poetry

The breeze at dawn
has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth
Across the doors where the two worlds touch.
The door is round & open.
Don't go back to sleep.

Elizabeth Gilbert on Creativity

A great talk about creativity and how we meet that relationship. If you haven't read Elizabeth Gilbert's book Eat Pray Love I highly recommend it.
