I happen to believe that we are all walking repositories of buried treasure. I believe this is one of the oldest and most generous tricks the universe plays on us human beings, both for its own amusement and for ours: The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them. The hunt to uncover those jewels – that’s creative living. The often surprising results of that hunt – that’s what I call Big Magic.
(Elizabeth Gilbert )
It constantly amazes me where avid readers get the energy to write a book review in a manner that they can relate the events to their own life journey. The fact that you can finish an entire book for a review is amazing enough for me. However, after so much contemplation on this particular book, I finally got myself a copy (and the last one in the bookstore, at that!) and truly, I can say, how epic it is for some hundreds-page book to impact my life so much.
I’m talking about Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear.
