• My Muse on Perspective

    by  • May 22, 2012 • 0 Comments

    My muse has been very quiet lately. No waking me up at 4 AM with another brilliant idea. No poetry interruptions at work or demands that I skip eating to start yet another book. Instead, she’s been watching my daughter. “Is she feeling better?” she asks. “Yes. She can go back to school now.”...

That’s what I asked myself when my full length play, The Guru, was accepted as a possible addition to a theater company’s Fall production line-up.

    Receipts and Whiney Muses
