When the muses decide to take leave to go follow other pursuits I seldom feel offended. For I know it's only temporary. I decide to go take a walk in the park admiring nature. I find that lying by the seashore reading a good book to be a good source of inspiration to bring me back on track. Like when you carefully choose the scenery for your plot you have to also set the scenery for the muses to come back to you. Go horseback riding, traveling and meeting people of different cultures can also set the stage for some wonderful adventures that can trigger the imagination. (less)

The City With Two Faces


It’s summer. I was out with my sunflower dress strolling down Grand Street on my way to Sunday brunch in Soho.”Hey Miss you’re very pretty. You want to take me home with you?” a homeless man burning in the 99-degree heat waves shouted at me. I looked at him twice. I couldn’t help notice he was a very handsome man. Perhaps he literally needed me to take him home with me because he was broke...

In this sense we are all descendents of the Haitain Revolution, and responsible to these ancestors.”
