“In our fear we believe that we must make things happen; in our practice we learn to let things happen.”

-Rolf Gates, Meditations from the Mat

I see more of the muses in this picture than in many of the images were they are captured in their entirety.

The muses are not just characters, they are facets of a human being, of a loving, caring, compassionate, kind, human being.

Yes, we identify them by their images, but they are in everything, and everywhere, always!

When I think of the muses, I think of them like the stars of the night, only visible under opportune circumstances. The opportune circumstances for stars, is the night sky. The opportune circumstances for the muses is when Paintist is inspired to capture their essence and compelled to share those images with us.

I, for one, feel blessed, I’m even in the proximity of a place where I have an opportunity to experience the muses as they are shared by Paintist 🎨. And, whether in their direct image, or as a bouquet of flowers that captures the truth of the moment, I am still in the presence of the Universal energy connecting all of us, to everything…

Blessed… 🙏🏼🕊🙏🏼

A comma splice walks into a bar, it has a drink and then leaves. 😁

While today’s painting may not have really been of the Muses, Musiness abounded in the colors and thoughts expressed. Great teamwork!
