Hello, again, friend. I suspect I may be trying your patience going on and on with the same old saw. If you’ll hang in with me just one more time, I’d be most appreciative. The search, like Robert Frost’s definition of life, “It goes on.” I explored one last avenue of possibility, the Lemon & Lavender boutique. As I’ve written many times, it is my go to source for lifting my spirits. It’s all about the fairy dust in that store. You’d think a muse might enjoy spending time in such an atmosphere. I figured it was worth a shot. If nothing else I would feel good getting a dose of that fairy dust. That’s how it went. Happy spirits, no muse.
Now what? Okay. I’ve yet to try a magic 8 Ball and navel gazing. Leave no stone unturned, I say. Although muses are not known to be mucking around under stones, you know what I mean. Best I take a break here. You can, too. Be back shortly.
I’m back. I hope you are, too. For the past few weeks I have been desperate for Thalia and Calliope, in particular, to come to my rescue. I believed I could not get going again without their help. They did inspire me a few years ago when I needed it. Maybe that was just a one off.
Motivation and inspiration had abandoned me along with my sedated imagination and creativity. I didn’t believe I had what it takes to emerge from this stupor on my own. Then I discovered that what I needed was sitting near by on my sofa.
Here's the thing. Inspiration, ideas may come and go. Not unlike other aspects of our beingness. Sometimes we are happy and feeling good. Sometimes we may be in a funk and on the down side of the spectrum. It’s all part of our humanity. The point is to be able to flow with what we are experiencing, remembering that all things eventually come to pass, not to last. That can be easy to lose sight of when we are in the midst of a downward spiral.
Whether the muses decide to assist me or not, that’s their business. No point waiting around any longer to see if they decide to show up. It’s time to use what I have and do what I can. What I have, as mentioned above, is sitting on my sofa. Will tell you all about it next time.
Thanks for listening. Thanks for being my friend. Ciao.
