I am one of those people who firmly believe in the power of the Muses. Or am at least willing to use them as a good excuse for doing what I want to do. If I need to sing, I sing (one of my few talents), even if I'm in the middle of a store and get funny looks. If I don't feel like knitting, I don't force myself. If I don't have an urge to write, ditto. That's just how I roll.
The trouble is, not having written anything for awhile, I then feel the need to explain myself, as if some one of my gentle readers out there was holding his/her breath until I wrote again. Well, ya know? Probably not. So...I've been reading, knitting baby things for my upcoming grandson and working. Not the stuff of exciting blog posts.
But today, a friend pointed me toward some words I'd not read before, and they struck me as so profound I knew I wanted to have them up where I could draw strength from them whenever I wanted. I used them to create an image, placing them on a background of my own creation. Then I thought I would share it here. Enjoy.
