Cristian Mihai : What’s a muse?.
Brilliantly articulated! I don’t think I could have said it any better myself, and probably would have seemed all the more foolish for tying. Not, however, for a lack of accuracy in my words, but that the nature of the Muse is so abstract -so complex- that only one with adequate experience could do justice to it. It’s just one of those surreal concepts that you can feel and understand so ardently, yet are unable to explain to someone less inclined towards such fancies.
I have gained a bit of insight into a current relationship situation that I have been mulling over(more details in my next post) in the reading of the above post. I am startlingly ( or maybe not so startling when I think deeply on it) that I have become another’s Muse, in one of the more intimate senses of the word. While this particular situation can be loaded with implications and/or possibilities, I feel a sense of intense curiosity and near obligation to see this through. I am already contributing in some weirdly influential way to this persons personal nd professional work. Simply put, I am blown away!
I cannot deny the intensity of my curiosity, nor my fascination towards any artistic pursuit-especially into the greatly admired realm of literature and philosophy. To deny this curiosity would be the biggest expression of self denial that I could portray at this time. With all that I have been through and will go through, I haven’t lost that sense of self. Yes, it has been distorted at times -even despised- but am not, nor will I ever, be one to shy away from the chance to grow and learn. Wherever it shall lead, and however long it shall last, it will be an adventure for sure! Any pain, or confusion, or frustration, (even happiness) that may result from this dynamic is merely another facet of this wonderfully awful companion we call Life.
