I’m planning on being a Family Doctor who also have a board certification in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. Most people have the idea that it’s like Chiropractics, and it is, because Chiropractics came FROM the original osteopath, Dr. Andrew Still in Missouri. This is a little blip on what OMM is:
Jackson Pollock(1912-1956) was an American Artist with one of the most unique artist because of the way he painted. He really didn’t paint objects, he painted…well, take a look. This is Autumn Rhythm

So, here’s an example of what Elizabeth Gilbert was saying. He redefined a whole art movement with his ideas of paints, “dripping” and “pouring” techniques. And in the end, he was a heavy drinker, struggled with depression, and ultimately died in a car crash, under the influence of alcohol.
So? Brilliant guy, painter extroidinaire, and major personality and addiction struggles. People expected a lot out of him and he changed his style as time went on, from dripping to darker panes…anyway, all in all, he spent time exploring his craft.
I admire that. Trying new things, even when the world says “You’re all good. You’re the best.” We can always try new things.
So, this is an old TED talk, but one that was really inspiring. Going to school has never been my favorite thing, especially in very structured environments. I was lucky to have had a couple teachers at the right time be more open. I really liked this talk.
So, I’m a big fan of TED. I think they have interesting talks and interesting people. With my polymath mind, I like to study people’s genius and saw this talk which was just given, and I was really impressed. How much of creativity is us and how much is God?
