@Jeje Awww Jeje, you are so sweet- I’m blushing! Thank you so much for kind words and also for the perfect offerings- so many wonderful things, how did you know all my favorites?! Many thanks back to you, Jeje, and a huge congrats on your artwork- I hope your painting went/is going well and that you had fun bringing it to life! Great job!
@Torista Hahaha the internet is indeed like going down the rabbit hole and finding a wonderland of information! I think you’ve got a fantastic hook and story base going- I am loving the direction of your story! I hope inspiration continues to flow for you, and should you reach the publication stage I would love to read the whole thing! Great work!
@Mary25 It sounds like Terpsichore swooped in and swept you off your feet, Mary- sometimes you do just have to give in and dance! You found your freedom and had a really lovely dance session- I’m proud of you for letting go and allowing yourself to rock to your own beat! Sometimes the unplanned things in life are the most meaningful- especially the things we don’t know we need until they happen Great job, Mary- you’ve got the soul of a dancer in you!
@Kasandra Thanks again for your lovely piece about Arcane, Kasandra! I’m really looking forward to watching it
@Amethyst The world of fanfiction is an amazing one, I’m constantly blown away by just how much quality writing is out there for anyone to enjoy- and for free! A round of applause to you, Amethyst- fanfic writers don’t get the credit and praise they deserve! You’re a hero! And ohhhh~ what a prayer I have my guess from the line “mischief to manage” The prayer made me smile- it’s such a beautiful play of words and humor all wrapped in a gorgeous and flowing rhyme. I hope Calliope sparked something for your writing, but even if not- this prayer alone is a huge writing success in my book! Bravo!
@LadyAuld.ofChico Perhaps Euterpe has had a loving hand on your shoulder over the years, Lady Auld- it sounds like you carry quite the connection with music! And even if it is difficult to find recorded ways to honor a muse, I think that could be a blessing in disguise- you are free to build your own bond and connect with them and what they stand for in your own personal way May you continue to thrive with your love of music, and may Euterpe always watch over you as you jam!
@Siofra_Strega Beautiful work with your reflective journaling, Siofra- I’m glad to hear you’ve recovered some light again! Those are some lovely journal prompts and it sounds like they’ve helped you gain control over tragedy and find your harmony once again. Well done!
@Jem1 Lovely work, Jem! You have so many wonderful creative talents, I think Euterpe is lucky to have been blessed with your focus this week The collage is stunning as always- I love how the clouds wrap around the song image. It looks like Euterpe and Her music is watching lovingly from above Bravo!
@Debra2 Your spell set-up is beautiful, Debra- beautiful work! I hope that everything works out as you wish it to and that you can find what you are seeking out of love. May Erato watch over and guide you! Beautiful chant and lovely job!
@Ostara It sounds like you’ve discovered a bond with Urania, Linda- congrats! There is indeed a dearth of information on the muses and what is out there can be rather contradictory But perhaps it is a blessing in disguise- you are free to pursue your work with Urania in the way that you feel is best! Thank you for sharing what you uncovered, and I wish you all the best with your continued studies of astrology
@Janis Mnemosyne! How creative, Janis- I had explored the muses themselves while putting the challenge together, but this was a delight to learn more about the muses’ mother- thank you so much for sharing your wisdom! That is a wonderful mission- may I ask how you’ve been enjoying the speech to text app so far? I’ve had mixed luck with the voice to computer programs, and would love to hear if that one is working for you! Anyways- lovely work and I am so happy that you enjoyed the challenge theme. The most wonderful bit is how it helped reconnect you with your Grandma Mary- such a beautiful story to tell, I was smiling while reading your entry!
@Satu_TheGreenWitch Hooray for Circe! You’ve done such great work exploring her background- I hadn’t heard of her possibly being a daughter to Hecate, that is really interesting And that picture… oh, what a treasure! Beautiful work and exploration of Circe, Kate- thank you so much for taking the time to share your findings!
@Eliza_01 Yay, Eliza- I’m so glad you choose the Muse of Comedy, Thalia sounds like a delight! I really love how you touched on the connection between light and dark, comedy and tragedy. And those quotes made me chuckle- they’re perfect! Really great job here- thank you so much for sharing!
@IrisW I’m glad to hear you are still thriving in your connection with Persephone, Iris- She has really won Her way into your heart And yes, I think the Moon can absolutely be a muse! Perhaps the moon is even one of the most traditional muses- inspiring humankind with its gentle and mystical light. Likely long before people even had words to share, the moon has been there urging us on Great job and thanks for sharing!
@Jeannie1 How wonderful that your husband joined you for the challenge, Jeannie- you are blessed to have such a loving and supportive partner at your side! I know things have gone up and down for you lately and I continue to pray for your son’s recovery, he is lucky to have his family (including his very loving mom) there supporting him as he heals. May the road continue to rise upward for you, Jeannie, and may be there be many happy times and blessings coming to you soon! Lots of love!
Great job, everyone! The Props and Presents Post for this challenge is now live- thanks again to everyone for embarking on their journeys with their muses. It was a delight reading your experiences!
Once again, bravo!
