Isabel Allende on Creativity

May 28, 2008

Another Ted talk, another video linked to rather than embedded, but I won’t go on about that again.

Isabel Allende on creativity and passion.

“What is truer than truth? The story. I am a storyteller. I want to convey something that is truer than truth about our common humanity.”

That’s the kind of thing I was getting at with my Shared Understanding piece earlier, but Isabel is more eloquent. Plus she picks up on the positive side of things; that storyteller can be the bridge that leads to a shared understanidng, that brings the unheard voices to our ears. Check it out.
