Maya Angelou was like my distant aunt. Every time I sat down with one of her works, I was sitting with my Auntie Maya as she advised me and encouraged me and empowered me. Unfortunately, so often we don’t get to say thank you until we absolutely have to and so…
Thank you Auntie Maya for all of your talks. Thank you for empowering generations and generation of women. We will teach your words to our daughters. Thank you for being an image of grace and intelligence. Thank you for being YOU. You are an immortal part of this world.
Thank you so much.
Who’s your muse?
I never really knew what a muse was or how you can be that inspired by another person. Before I knew it I had met someone, and from my experiences with them I wrote poetry, songs and short stories. I looked back like, “Damn”. I guess he was my first muse. Now, I’m able to focus that same energy and write songs straight from the heart. All of my songs in LoveJourney are about real experiences that I’ve had with real people. Most of my “muse” creations are about romance and love, but there are some other aspects of life I pull from too. I also see using a muse as a way to over a situation you might be feeling a bit bitter about.
Trust me it works.
So, next time you create, try to pinpoint your muse, and if you can your work will be that much stronger.
Thanks to every muse out there. Continue to live & inspire.
