Sunday Morning Muse

Sunday morning. A blue sky outside, the soft hush of tradewinds, the dog at the foot of my bed, the house quiet and empty except for us. I could be doing anything. Do you realize how rare these moments are for me? I live with people. Lots of them. Most of them children - far outnumbering the grown-ups, life continually swirls around us; work, school, rides, needs to meet, places to go, people to be fed, deadlines to be met, bills to pay, laundry to do, kitchen to clean, it never ends

But this morning is one of those very, very rare times when I am alone. A questionable breakfast beverage in hand (no comment), my newest food mags next to me, and my computer screen feeding me inspiration.    

Sometimes this is all I need to get my mojo back. My muse deserts me sometimes, but I'm getting to know her/him/it a little better and I have noticed that it likes it when I am happy. When my mind is clear. When my heart is at peace. When I am overflowing with love. This muse of mine is a party animal, I'm learning. All the stress, drama, emotional bullshit - she(he/it) can do without all of that and, in fact, runs like the wind when that stuff is overpowering the mood. Heck, I don't blame her (him/it)! But when I am in this space, it shows up and inevitably leads me to beautiful images, words, thought, and then takes me by the hand and leads me into the kitchen, pours us both a cocktail and watches me do my thing.

SO that's where I'm headed now. Send my muse some love, because she(?) seems to be back, and I am oh so thankful.



  1. Can it be? Yes it be........plullllleeeze come back. Your words are like food for my soul.......we do miss you, dear blogger. Carry on, carry on.............whilst we wait with baited, or bated breath!
    Your faithful followers, well, me anyway.........

  2. Awwww.... THANKS anonymous! I'll do my best to wrangle that bitchy muse of mine!
    Thank you so much for your comment, your encouragement, and your bated breath

  3. Dear Heidi's Muse,
    You rock and then Heidi rocks... she would like consistent rockery, so keep on showing up. This will make many folks incredibly happy - most importantly Heidi. Without you in her life and her in her followers lives, we'd simply be devoid of flavorful musings... pun intended. Heck, I figure if I can't make the Muse amused (more intentional punnage) what's the point of trying to rouse her to consistency on Heidi's behalf?

    Much love and hugs,
    JoLynn :) <3

  4. Oh my gosh Jo! Thank you for such a great comment! Sometimes I think I'm just blabbing on the blog for my own entertainment, but it is so nice to know that you are here and waiting for flavorful musings and also willing to rouse my muse for me! You are a truly great follower and I'm always SO happy to see your comments!
    Thank You!!!

  5. Those quiet beautiful alone moments, they are special. And cheers to pleasing the muse.
