Ode to a Muse

I am feeling a creative block.
You have the key to my lock.
Turn the key. 
Spring me free.
Watch my creativity take flight
And end this uninspired blight.

I love my muse!  It never ceases to amaze me the things that she and I can come up with.  Do you believe in muses?  Maybe you don't, but I need to believe in a muse.  It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling knowing I am not alone in my creative journey.  My muse and I are a team and we are rocking Team Creativity.

I think we all should acknowledge our muse.  Maybe give our muse a nickname like Musetang Sally, Musealicous, or Velma.  My muse's name is Cindy.  I know, unusally tame for me, but I did an excercise and that is the name I came up with.  I took a deep breath, closed my eyes and thought what is my muse's name and Cindy is the first name that popped in my head.  

It was absolutely shocking and thrilling for me that this was the name that came to me as one of my very dear friends was named Cindy.  She passed away 7 years ago.  

So now when I head for my Creative Closet, I give Cindy a shout out and say "Let's do this!"

What is your muse's name?
