Calliope climbed out from under the table. She rubbed her rump and grimaced. “Maybe we weren’t ready for yoga last night.” “If people waited until they felt ready… They’d never do anything,” said Thalia. “Our old friend Robert Frost said, ‘Freedom lies in being bold.’”
The muses have such wisdom to share. Two messages that I needed today: 1. If I wait until I feel ready, I’ll never begin. 2. Keep calm and post on even if I have missed days. Thank you muses!
“Hey, Tal!” (forgive my cheeky use of your inter-Muse appellation). “… that anybody noticed! Like not noticing the taste difference while enjoying a lemon drop? Or Red Hots? Or sauerkraut and pork roast?”
“And Nia?” (See mea culpa op cit.) “Do you worry that missing a day constitutes a breach of trust with readers and subscribers alike? Not this one.”
“Cal, of the ouchy derrière,” (ditto) “A little bird told me that scribe-painter-typist had a full day yesterday. So still getting to yoga class doesn’t fall too short of a miracle. Did someone swipe your yoga mat?”
Today is all we have. Ever. Enjoy!
I figured you had stuff going on. Because: life. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I noticed... And I found out myself that it's challenging to keep writing every day when you have other things going on too. Great work, I love your writing.
The “girls” have given me an entirely different perspective for embracing my favorite quote:
“When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.” (Unless it’s one of your muses). -Harley Davidson
Our muses afford us access to the voice beyond the voice, the space beyond the space, the breath beyond the breath…
“Hear your muses, find your life.”
“Hold The Vision, Trust The Process.”
