I’ve been asked if the Former Muse is a person. (?)
A. Yes and no. The Former Muse is a person (or two) as much as it is a mental anchor, or a context. The Former Muse is a place, both imagined and remembered, where I feel ultimately accepted, supported, and resolute. In the world called “The Former Muse,” I solve problems and enjoy myself.
Musing in “Former Muse Terms” is sometimes, a shortcut to the way I’d rather feel. Other times, it’s a language…
