So I’ve been holding onto this post for a while, but thanks to Jeannie Lindsay‘s prompting, it’s going up today.
Jeannie and I wanna know who’s your muse? More specifically, while there are those who wonder WWJD (what would Jesus do) we wanna know who fits in your anachronism?
This past year i authored and curated a calendar project that I titled What Would Frida Do? The publisher later changed the title,but the idea stuck: Frida is one of my guides, as I follow her path through trauma, despair, hope and, ultimately, creative expression and “self as canvas.”
I have many others, souls I would consider my muses: Kahlil Gibran, Rumi, Rilke, Auntie Mame, Tori Amos, Esther Hicks, Amma.
Feel free to differentiate between your muses (inspiring) and your mentors/role models.
I never had a mentor/role model. I admire people who do. Maybe that’s partly why I do what I do: I want to serve my tribe inspiration, but also the empowerment of their own true story. Nothing is more exciting than watching your face light up with “I can do this! I got this.” Sets me on fire to watch you go!
So now I have to add you to my list of muses. Tribe, you are truly inspiring to me.
Now tell me–Who sets you on fire? Who modeled the way? If you are facing a tough situation, who’s energy do you conjure or emulate?
Who’s your muse?
