Has your Muse drifted off?

I've been hearing a lot of talk lately: My Muse is GONE. I've lost my Mojo. Can't seem to get it together.
Perhaps it's Winter and the lack of sunlight.
Maybe our minds need a bit of a respite.
Relax. Release some of the pressure.

You may be surprised that it all comes back.

Have a good day,

Hi Ron,
Yeah, funny you should say this....I really think it is due to thetime of year. I used to feel a bit 'flat' even when I was in my paid job around Jan /, it's even more important to keep on top of it all, as there are no line-managers, supervisors or colleagues - oh but wait! There are all my blogging friends! Thank goodnes for blogs, eh? It's a life-line to me, that's for sure. Great post Ronnie!

beautiful- the muse lives but is often not recognised in the form she presents.

Those pics are lovely. Is it near you? I love the message under your etsy button. "light is always on and the weather is fine"

Ronnie said...

Took these from the backyard and dock in McDonough.

I am blessed with the desire to do so many different types of art, that I am always being challenged and seldom lose my mojo. I do feel like I have lost it a bit now, because I can't for the life of me figure out what the pictures are of the round thing. What comes back to you? The pressure, your mojo or a big round gray thing? I know you must think I am crazy, and I would probably agree. Lovely photos, as always. Take care, Susan

Hi Ronnie, just got your message. How are you?

Ronnie said...

Susan, I WAS being a bit vague. HAHAH HHaa! This big ball must have been lost by someone on the lake. It looked so other worldly to me that I had to take pictures. And the series made it look as if it was coming over to see me. So, I guess It was symbolic of a returning Muse. :) I doubt you were the only one that didn't get my message.

Ronnie said...

Julie-Ann! Hang out here for a while! Maybe your talent will rub off on me!!!
If you haven't seen Julie-Ann's new mermaids. GO LOOK!

Oh Ronnie, I am so slow with jokes! Bless you!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Wow! What awesome photos!
I'm sorry that your silly muse decided to hightail it away for a while. But you know how those muses are...she might be back tomorrow. I'll cross my fingers for you.

On a different note, I didn't know you were once a military wife! Yet another thing we have in common!

One day we must meet!

Buskitten said...

Hey Ronnnniiieeee! Good Morning!
Saxa is a brand of salt here in the UK, it's been around forever and the logo has never changed - Tiddles is a traditional Tiger, and likes to stick with what he knows!

Anne said...

Hi, Ronnie! Sorry your muse has left you. When I'm in a rut like that, I usually just concentrate on other things that I've let go while I've been creating (like chores and stuff) and go for nice walks outside, and before you know it, that mojo is back. Hang in there! It will return!

Love your photos! And thanks for stopping by my blog today, too! :-)

My "MUSE" disappeared about the same time I got sick - almost a month now. Geez, I haven't even been able to post anything decent. Your pics are pretty cool. Where's the one where the aliens pop outta the ball?

(I got so frustrated last night that I seriously considered deleting an entire manuscript - over 50,000 words so far. I've never been very patient I'm afraid - 'specially when I am a 'patient'.)

Have a great weekend.

You inspire us all to be better bloggers, Ronnie. Thank you!

You must reveal the secrets behind this photo. Did you releash your yoga ball on a nearby pond and take pictures?

A very uplifting post.

Those photos are so calming and beautiful!

Sandy Mastroni said...

I wish there was a vacuuming muse.
I'd rather draw than do the laundry or COOK [dear God ]
When I get stuck .... I draw on a new surface . I jump from fabric to tin to wood to paper to canvas .That helps .
have a good week !

Lisa Gatz said...

Ronnie, this is so strange because a few days ago I was walking around saying in my head, "dammit, I want my mojo back!"

My muse has been silent. Who does she think she is, taking a vacation?? She must be Union.

I liked this post so much, I left you a bit of link love on our blog today. If you are interested, check it out. You'll just have to figure out which link is yours, which hopefully should not be too hard!

LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE these pictures!!!!!!!

T3CO said...

I'm concerned that, that was part of your chair drifting off not your muse...

Ronnie said...

Nope. Don't worry Missy. My chair ball is a black one. This silver one was lost by some unknown neighbor.

Molly said...

Awesome photos! And as a matter of fact I do believe my craft Muse has returned to me *yayyyyy* :D

Stacy said...

These photos make me wish I had a vacation.
