Lately, I have been trying to find information on the The Muses, the Greek Gods of the Arts. There is surprisingly very little out there, even though it has been the artists crutch/inspiration for hundreds of years. I research a lot behind the scenes for my books and art pieces, and this one quickly becoming a time consuming conquest. The reason I set off down this road was because I have never created so much art as I have with Roland. Starting in the last half of my pregnancy I have started or finished 40 different artworks (short stories, book projects, photos, digital art) and I thought hmmm Ro is my Muse! Then I thought I should write or make an art piece on the Muse….and here I am, reading a dissertation from 1993, which may be the best info I have found yet lol!! Anyway, if anyone out there knows a good book on muses, even a fiction/fantasy let me know!
It was to awesome to finally head outdoors for even a small hike. The clouds rolled in last night and the sound of rain on my roof made me so happy. I love September; the change in weather, apple pies galore and that cozy feel of fall. But it’s not just that, this was my first hike in months. Pregnancy was a wee bit hard on me the first couple months, but this morning I woke, after finally sleeping through an entire night, and it was like complete elation. Finally heading out to my favorite place in town (Kenna by the compost dump) was GLOOOOOORIOUS (you have to say that Oprah style). Sagebrush scent was faint in the air, colors deep and rich from the rain, birds winging skillfully over bush tops. Heaven.
