My Muse

“To be the inspiration, and to be the one inspired, are both beautiful things. All writing, all creativity is inspired from somewhere deep – where the soul meets the mind.”

He was my muse because I met him, back in 1996. He was my muse because he existed. It was a blind date, set up my by my sister. It was never about what I saw in him, it was what I felt about him. Because I loved him. Who knows why we fall in love with who we do; in the end the heart wants what it wants regardless of reason. All I can say is that I loved him and from that love came the inspiration for what I wrote. For many years.

Our relationship was not long, but what nonetheless significant in my life. And regardless of how it turned out,, I was abetter person for having experienced him.

You never know the affect you have on someone life. The person who inspires you probably has no idea and so forth and so on. It is one of the great mysteries and beauties of life. He was my muse. Most of what I wrote, all the love poems, all about missing someone, every word about love, was somehow connected and inspired by him.

And I got the chance to tell him, that he was my muse and had been for many years. To thank him for his gift.

Even though we did not end up together and will never end up together, it does not mean the love was not real and deep. Even thoughh things are as they should be, doe snot mean that he will not continue to inspire me. I will always be grateful.


Having been in radio and a member of the media for over 20 years, music is and always will be a huge part of my life. Two of the best performances of the 2014 Grammy Awards. The two living members of the Beateles were great, but these two bt far were the most incredible.

First Pink, showing she has more talent than most who call themselves artists today. Wow.

And Second Mackelemore – who with penned one of the most beautiful peaces and reasons why we need to make todays’ world safe for children to be who they are. We are all the same – Humans – when it gets down to it. We have blood in out veins that pumped by a very human heart. It’s sad that many kids these days find it easier to kill themselves than be in a world where they feel unaccepted, unloved and unlovable. The Grammy’s missed an opportunity to send a message when it gave the album, artist and song of the year to other artists….
