This blog may be about 4 Chicks and their ongoing quest to lead fully creative lives, but I’m the star here. Who am I?
I am the Muse. I am inspiration. Behind every creative journey through the ages, there I am.
The wheel? My humble suggestion. The Mona Lisa? That’s my work, too. Why do you think she’s smiling? Romeo and Juliet? Ah, yes. A Muse by any other name would smell as sweet.
So now these 4 Chicks want to find me. They’re desperate to find me, it seems. They each have creative seedlings they want to see bloom. Well the truth is, Eva, Peggy, Tracey and Vivi have as good a chance at finding me as William, Leonardo, and dear what’s-her-name. Come to mention it, so do you, my curious reader.
Do you want to find me? Have you already looked for me? Well, despite rumors to the contrary, mine is not a game of hide-and-seek, but rather one of seek-and-find, and I do so love being found.
How can you find me, you ask? You can find me in: writing, storytelling, filming, painting, running, singing, cooking, dancing, sewing, skydiving, rhyming, acting, drawing, decorating, parenting, researching, editing, cleaning, speaking, playing, learning, listening, hoping, planning, working, laughing, risking, traveling, trying, crying, working, waiting, believing, sharing, changing, celebrating, struggling, trusting, working, persevering. In other words–by truly living.
Wherever you are in your creative journey, I am ready to meet you there. Meanwhile, the 4 Chicks will be meeting here. They say they feel my presence most powerfully when they’re together, and they want to share that experience with others. Maybe you’ll feel me more, too. Because although no eye has ever seen me, I am always near.
I am the Muse. I am the inspiration you seek. Come find me.
