Chasing the Muse

  1. Create an altar for the muse — maybe even to the specific muse that resonates most with your preferred art form. Add some of your own artistic/poetic creations and/or some other inspiring items. Sunstone and moonstone are two of my favorite “creativity stones”. So, I usually have both of those on altars in my creative spaces. A muse altar is like a 3-D “vision board”­­ — great for sparking creativity, as well as improving focus. In my experience, muses especially love it if you honor them with a poem! Or an effigy (below). Or a song! I keep my wooden flute by my writing table and often play before I write. An altar represents intention. If you call sincerely from the heart, there’s a good chance a muse will respond….

At the intersection: the hum and whir of engines, the scrape of heavy tires, the rumbling vibration of metal beasts racing over asphalt. Early May, an intersection of seasons: wind rustles branches, hustles burgeoning leaves forward, toward summer with a resounding roar.
