My News & Muses

This past Monday, 4 days ago, my right arm was operated on in out-patient surgery:  for a pinched ulna nerve resulting from my 9/23 spinal surgery of last yr; and a 3rd (yes, true) carpal tunnel on right palm… so this is all on my dominant side and heavily bandaged, AND here I am tapping away which requires lifting my arm around across ny body which is heavy work on the bicep right above the elbow, and
It’s also frustrating because I should rest it and refrain from drawing and my embroidery art.  AND,,,
I had about 2 weeks when no poems wanted to be born…oh, my…
But then this week, well,two nights ago, they kept me up all night and still come speaking out.  Meanwhile…I must research Muses, because from the little I know, I don’t believe in them.  Like faeries, sprites and gnomes, I think.  They don’t send me inspiration or words.  My voice is my own, possibly dipping in the collective subconscious (deep stuff7.  It is possible the musing muses also have their impressions swimming around in there.
So, what do you think?

I must also add…I believe, in the name of Jesus, that GOD IS SOURCE. …GOD IS CREATOR … THERE IS NO OTHER SOURCE OF CREATING. There may be other vehicles or tools … just as we are vessels. I wait upon the Lord. He is Lord..I write w/& for the boss! Smiles!,,NCJ

Wish you a speedy recovery. Best of my poems have come from within effortlessly and I still don't understand some of them completely. Readers interpretation helps me. My muse too is he. Take care.

A fab comment! Your comment relates to why I contend we are created with the Address (source, home) of poetry within us, placed Twin to the Soul. Don’t U love when the poem flow sends out an unfamiliar word that fits the writing?!

Wish you a speedy recovery, Sally. As for inspirations being ours, in as ‘owned’, I’d say yes and no. Yes bcoz we draw in by resonation, chosen vibrations. No bcoz, as a mind-body crucible, we but reflect God’s miracles.

Wow to every word of your comment. I’m going to copy and paste it in my new journal. And ever so grateful for your well wishes. I am, meanwhile a hard core follower & research folk & fairy tales. They only WORK when based in an underlying believable reality to which u may add all the fantastic doodads u want. Thus, there is some reason they survive 100’s of yrs. thanks 4yr thoughts xoxo

First, my heart goes out to you for all the suffering you have gone through over the past year. I do believe in the muses, Sally, for sometimes my brain is dry, then all of a sudden a full blown work will present itself on the page, leading me to believe that something higher, more creative, than I was working with (or through) me. Who gives me these ideas? Hmmm, for me at least, my muse is real...fairies, sprites and gnomes are only real in my fantasies...does that make sense??? Thanks for sharing, and I will be thinking about you and sending all the healing energy I can muster your way. Get well soon!

Thank you Milton. I am a radical believer. Your sent energies will arrive. Anymore, I have to stay alert, always sensing, for ever 3 words will pop to mind & I think, oops, a poem wants to come & I must grab pens.yes, U make sense! I even have a counselor, spiritual & poetry inter- Preter. My perennial ? to him is WHERE ARE ALL THESE COMING FROM? Xoxo

Constance, I started writing again after quit 35 yrs upon meeting a young poet on FB thru my s-I-l. We became very close & in poetry, fed off each other, like lava from twin volcanoes. He held to a muse. I forget her name. Charlie died & I claim he sent me more poems from heaven than I ever sensed from a muse. My regards to ur muse. He have a name? Good to see u!
