MEETING THE MUSE . . .

What does it mean when the TsunaMuse meets you?

Experiencing the Muse is unforgettable when it happens for the first time. If you have already met the Muse, you already know a flash of inspiration accompanies the idea for a complete poem or story--or other form of art--that virtually composes itself if given the chance. However, if you have not become acquainted with the Muse, you have a surprise to look forward to experiencing.

When you purposely set out to meet the Muse, and it happens, you have the choice: to follow through or not follow the inspiration just received.

When the Muse meets you, it's a different story. You are unprepared. It happens in a flash and has been described as a higher power that temporarily possesses body and mind, causing you to effortlessly create a poem, story, painting, piece of music or other work you had no choice about. Exercising your mind encourages the Muse to surprise you. As a start, check out the new Native American mystery challenge on page 3 by clicking White Buffalo.

The Muse is the mysterious spiritual quality all creative people have, regardless of socioeconomic, religious, national and ethnic differences. It is always intuitive in nature, whether it appears in dreams or while you are awake, and both males and females experience it. A Native American meditation to help you meet your Muse can be accessed by clicking Turquoise Dream Catcher

In our closing salutation, we always say, "May the Muse be with you" but have never explained further—until now. Following the earthquake and tsunami that recently hit Japan, the Muse met me and created an intuitive tidal wave that went around the world via our circle of poets who receive the Flash e-mails I send from time to time. In this case, I meant to send to all of you, but was unable to do so; therefore, the rest of this unusual story appears here: click Tsunami

May the Muse be with you.
