You set my soul alight

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a Muse in the wardrobe.  A little creature that is hard-wired to your inner creative that you can take off its hanger and plug in to waft around your space like a visionary air freshener,  inspiring as you respire making the process of conceiving and forming as easy as pie.  Failing that, I suppose we all have a mechanism that works in a sort of a way and for me the sort of a Muse is generally a mountain or some water.  Up at 7,000 feet plus in the pre-Alps of the Belledonne mountains above Grenoble you find lakes.  The ones in the picture are called les Lacs Roberts.  Align them to a perfect sky (note the sticky candy clouds in the otherwise perfect blue – imperfection is perfection I always feel)  and something in me soars and sparkles and I feel the inspiration bubble.  Whether it makes any sense to anyone else or whether it is just garbled rubbish is neither here nor there – the fact is that my soul is free and light.  It’s a start.

PS:  The title is from a song called Supermassive Black Hole …. My husband is another sort of muse for me though I don’t keep him in a wardrobe on a hanger – he of the two brains who has been working to get the first images of M87 a common or garden supermassive black hole and looks to the stars for his muse (when he’ not looking to me of course!)  The song is by The Muse … it amused me.  Here is is:

    the French-Catalan Pyrénées are gorgeous, too, even though less "majestic" than the French Alps… 🙂

    • Just back from a flying visit to Ariege – staying in the mountains … and drove back through the Haute Pyrenees. You are right that they are different to the Alps but they have their own majesty – like us my dear M 🙂

  7. Wonderful images and story Osyth. The image of your husband hanging in your wardrobe reminds me of a commercial for one of the banks in England from years ago where your bank manager resided in your wardrobe. Was it the Nat West or Barclays, I forget, anyway thanks for bringing a smile to my face this morning. Best wishes for a lovely weekend 🙂
