Dear Muse


Dear Muse,
I want to say thank you.
Thank you for your patience with me. 
Thank you for giving me something new every time we meet.
Thank you for inspiring me from the very beginning.
Thank you for inspiring me several hundred more times.
Thank you for getting me through times of pain, fear, and sadness.
Thank you for giving me the energy to keep working.
Thank you for sitting with me every time I sit down to work.
Thank you for your infinite patience.
Thank you for talking to me while I’m walking.
Thank you for always having something to teach me.
Thank you for pushing me to expand my limits.
Thank you for making my life better.
This is a short blog, not because I’ve run out of reasons to thank you, but because I can’t thank you enough.  You’ve changed my life.  I can’t believe how much you’ve given me.  All you required from me was that I do my work, that I show up and do my work and you would do the rest.  Everyone who has a Muse gets to say the same thing.  Everyone who has a Muse understands what love is.  Everyone who has a Muse also has the key to self-liberation.
Thank you for giving me love and freedom.  Thank you for helping me to Get Started and to Keep Going.  You are the best Muse ever.
