“Calling all Angels”

June 14th, 2010

“Dear Muse, I call your name.

Will you come to my side and

stir the visions that lie within?

If I offer my time, my hands, my

deepest desire to make a thing

that matters, will you help make

a whole from the pieces I’ve gathered?”

I was going through some old journals this weekend and found this invocation to the Muse scribbled in it. I don’t know who wrote it or where I found it, and I feel like I posted it on my old blog, but I think it’s worth repeating. When we are trying to create from the heart, we need to invoke all the benevolent, magical spirits that used to inhabit the earth before they were thrown out by science and mechanization and all the little god men who think the soul is nothing more than a double helix and some chemical reactions in the brain.
