What is the muse but inspiration? So if it is inspiration, then from where and from whom does it come?
The three Muses in Greek Mythology were for literature, the arts and for science, kept alive in the common consciousness by oral tradition.
In popular mythology a muse can refer to anyone who inspires say a creator in the form of a sculptor, artist, musician or writer.
I feel that therein lies the true origin of the muse, as the muse is in the mind and anyone or anything can provide inspiration.
It helps to have an active imagination to be able to interpret what is seen or heard into some form of creativity.
I have no hesitation in proposing a forth muse in the persona of mother nature who never ceases to inspire me.
In following a guided meditation I am immediately given vibrant images to match the words of the guide.
Some folks profess to be visual and others more sound based in their imagery, I am blessed to have a good mix of the two,
Since I enjoy making simple sounds on the piano and enjoy classical music of the ancient kind.
There is an undisputed benefit from an occasional splash of water colour on the cartridge,
Which seems these days to be confined to a holiday activity with many hung and a drawer full of the unframed,
With a admission of the last holiday taken twenty five years ago, with colours cracked and tubes drying out,
Perhaps it is time to take that holiday, resurrect the long forgotten colours, clean the china palette,
Find that adventurous spirit, take to the road again and take that well earned rest, but in all seriousness, not in this heat.
Where is the muse of travel to overcome the parochial pastime of watching the roses grow in our own patch of Olympus.
The muses are all here, helping us to create pictures in words for others to interpret and enjoy.
To spend time interpreting, transforming and sending the healing energies given to all and sent to others in need.
Whether we wish to see our plot as Heaven or Olympus, we feel that we are gifted and much blessed to be here in glorious Devon.
The Grace of Well-being is not seen, felt or accepted by most and it is the sacred duty of those that do, to pass it on.
Sending it in a form that will be accepted giving relief to all who believe and ask for it, whether they accept the muse or not.
