What is Big Magic? It’s that voice in the back of your head that wakes you up at 3 am, the wolfing hour, whispering to pursue that idea you had. It’s that song playing at exactly the right time and with just the right message. It’s bumping into someone unexpectedly at Whole Foods, bringing an opportunity you were hoping to find.  It is kismet. It is destiny. It’s written in the stars, and it’s also the name of Elizabeth Gilbert’s new book. I’m sure you heard of her international best...
