CC watched TED Talks by author Elizabeth Gilbert of “Eat, Pray, Love” fame as a means to break through her writer’s block, and her videos inspired us to talk about the source of a writer’s inspiration. We knocked down a series of dominos and ended up with the question: Are some writers divinely inspired by God to write their works, or is creativity the result of the happenstance of physiological neurons and flashes of genius?

We included a “Philosophy of Religion” class, the Baha’i’ Faith, our conscience, and the one or many faces of God.

We also discussed old school driving lessons and our basement. This all makes sense (or not) if you have a listen. TIA LYL!

PS: Here are Ms. Gilbert’s TED Talks:
Your elusive creative genius
Success, failure and the drive to keep creating
