A Muse, a Genius, a Daemon ~ Tuesday, March 24, 2009

My friend Candice embedded this link in FB a few weeks ago, I believe--and another friend, Tamara, linked to it yesterday. I finally got around watching it today.

I'm still processing the implications, but it brought tears to my eyes. I love that it acknowledges the drudgery of the the creative process--and the notion that showing up every day, and going through the motions, does count for something, as you wait for your muse, your genius, your daemon to visit, in all its energizing, powerful, transcendent capriciousness.

My post on creative chaos
also ties into this notion--in a way, it's a variation. What I call chaos--the muse of fire--is what she calls the genius or the daemon.
