Mother of Wisdom

......she's baaaaccck!

Nu Kua

As one of my friends said....Hallelujah!!!
I think some were getting tired of me whining.
But she's back and has been for a bit over a week...
.she came in on the wind and rain...
Rain, glorious rain, came to Coarsegold.
Not a lot...a teaser really
...but it cooled things down & there was that smell of rain and earth meeting after a long separation that I love so much.

She arrived with inspiring gifts and she unexpectedly brought my brother and sister for a few days of visiting. A nice surprise...they live in Oregon and we don't see each other often enough.

This Muse and I have been together since my vision quest....
she is Nu Kua....
she keeps order but still enjoys play
....she helps me 'see' and stay on track when I'm filled with ideas.
I think she went on holiday because she knows Sierra Art Trails is right around the corner and I will be relying on her more than usual to help me pull it all together Spirit Figures.....
when she left I had 3 figure on the way to completion....
Maiden, Mother and Crone
Now complete!

...return to me

Posted by Picasa

Where oh where has my Muse gone....?
If you see her will you ask her to return to me?
I think she is off on a holiday.

Maybe there is a gathering of the Muses somewhere in that other dimension...
They are dancing in the mist
being cared for by fairies and sprites
Singing their songs
Drinking sweet nectar
they are sharing experiences, gathering ideas and experimenting with new ways to inspire.
I can believe, envision, and dance alone, but with her I'm better...the dance is freer, my heart lighter, time less linear
I don't think I've insulted her....
I do know
I have listened....
been open.....
shown gratitude.

So come back home dear Muse...we have work to do.

I love it when people send me photos of their Spirit Figures at home....

I have been neglecting my blog...

I wonder if you do this too...?

have all kinds of wonderful ideas to share on your blog while you're busy doing things that don't require a bunch of thought, but still keep you from posting.
I sure do.

When I can't get to my blog I have all kinds of wonderfilled thoughts and personal insights and dialog floating around in my brain and they all seem interesting topics to blog about. But when I don't sit down right away with blogging as my intent they lose their energy and feel stilted.

I think that's the word I'm looking for...

Lots of times I sit down here to post and NOTHING comes...blank...
One afternoon I actually ran down the back hill and into the house and sat down here to post something I wanted to share before it could flit right out of my head. I startled my Bear with my urgency.

I also have deadlines I have to meet this month.

I'm going to be a part of the california fiber artists exhibit at Arts Visaila in October and the deadline for the opportunity to be on the postcard is coming up on the 15th of this month.
I'd like to have at least one of my Spirit Figures done in time to submit a photo.

So I've been in the studio.

And I have some wild things going on in my life...

I say wild because they are so out of my control.
You probably know the kind I mean...

stuff you can't change or fix,
but can't ignore either
and in fact, you need to be totally present as the events play out.
The only real choices I have are to be present, or not, and how I react.
There is the Serenity Prayer...
It's a good one...

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change...

the courage to change the things I can,

and the wisdom to know the difference.

It's been my mantra more then once in my lifetime.
