The Creative Spirit

“The creative spirit moves in a body or ego larger than that of any single person. Works of art are drawn from, and the bestowal nourishes, those parts of our being that are not entirely personal, parts that derive from nature, from the group and the race, from history and tradition, and from the spiritual world.”
– Lewis Hyde, The Gift (New edition. Canongate, 2007)

    I haven’t read this, either. It looks great. The creative spirit is such an interesting topic. I love the quote and will check out the website now. Have a beautiful weekend, Michelle!
