In Solitude and Grace
this Heart of mine I place
upon the Alter of Love
given from Heav’n above
so that Rays of Light
penetrate which seek bright
in order for the whole of me
continue Life with God-Ease

Wouldn’t you know it when I got shaky with the “process” upon which posts of mine are made, a new method I attempted failed. Sure did. I thought (for a change) I would take the words that had come earlier (written down on my yellow pad), outside with me to peruse my garden to see if I could construe what shots to take for those words. All I obtained was zilch, natta, no genius of a Muse felt anywhere.
Huh. How do ya like that? Teach me, didn’t She, not to change anything!
OK!! I stopped what was evidently a fruitless endeavor. So I turned on my heel heading inside to put the yellow pad down and to pick my camera up instead. To the quick that is what I did and just sighed a huge sigh of relief as I slipped into my world known only to me. And of course my Heart guided me every step of the way as my Muse whispered softly … Do look over there! Yes! There! You got it! Now get it!
*shaking my head* And just because I got shaky I thought I was smarter then my Muse? Paleeze!
I shot a total of 36 images still not knowing what images were going to be presented along with the words that came to me earlier that day. As I began to view them in my editor, again my Muse nudged me … Aha! Yep, there you go, that’s one! Now what words will you pair it with? And so on it went until I had exactly eight images to go with the words I wrote earlier that day.
Oh yes, this is how this “creative process” works with me. I do not ever know what is coming, or what I will do. I just have this “urging” inside of me which guides me to head in a certain direction or my eyes get pulled to a certain something and then from there another certain something … until I’m lost so deep in a Mother’s World I loose contact with everything else in this world. And the words? Those too, I never know when they come. They show up when they do. As simple as that.
Lesson learned. I will not change a thing, not one iota of anything, giving my Muse full leeway as I step aside. You’d think I know by now not to fix something that’s not broke. Hmmmm …
