This morning before 9 am I heard, or read the word muse three times. Now really how often do you hear that word?
Funny thing over the holiday weekend, I had a discussion with my sister. I told her I was ready to announce to the world I am done being an artist. Perhaps it would be better if I said that I am on Sabbatical. My passion is waning. My sister said I should say my muse is on vacation. There is that word again.
This morning, I also watched Alicia Keys perform on TV. I think she was singing to me personally, no really I am pretty sure our eyes locked and she was telling me to listen to the message. Sure you hear performers sing with voices that come from their heart, that is what compels us to listen.
Something about this performance screamed to me that she was truly completely passionate about her art and the words that she was singing. I’m not that familiar with her music, so don’t think I am a big fan just gushing.
Curious after seeing her this morning, I did a little research and read a review in which the writer said they thought on occasion, she makes her sincerity seem manufactured. I didn’t come away with that. Her song Brand New Me – gave me a kick in the butt and reminded me that I must be in touch with my creative true.
I’ve been frustrated with my inability to reach people with my craft and receive their support by means of purchasing. People purchase music/art because it speaks to them on some level. I don’t want to reduce the true of my heart by putting a price tag on it, but realistically I do make things to sell.
I must feel and believe with my heart to create. I’m looking, listening,waiting and resting. I believe that there is change acomin’ – a brand new me.
I have been feeling like I’ve lost my groove – those were the very words that came in my head, so you can only imagine my surprise when I discovered the second part of my creative prompt purchase was titled Finding Your Groove.
It is like the universe is screaming for me to connect the dots.
What do you do to put your soul on the right track?
Until next time,
