A high school friend posted this concert clip on her page. I love me some Erykah Badu, lawd ha'mercy! Next to Tori, she is my second favorite vocalist. Saw her in a New Years concert ('07) and she did NOT disappoint.

Thought I'd pass the clip along for some afternoon inspiration.

Phat beats.
Cosmic chords.
Heavenly flute and vocals.

Feel the soul, ya'll!

My muse likes vanilla scented candles, writing long hand on legal pads.

And of course...Tori Amos.

Her favorite song of the moment? "Flying Ducthman"

Hey kid, I've got a ride for you.
They say, your brain is a comic book tatoo
And you'll never be anything.

"What will you do with your life?" Oh,
That's all you hear from noon 'til night.

Take a trip on rocketship, baby
Where the sea is the sky...

Flying Ducthman, are you out there?
Flying Ducthman, are you out there?
Flying Dutchman...

They can't see what you're born to be.
They can't see me.
They can't be what they can't believe.
They can't see what you see.

They can't see...
They can't see...

Are you still out there?

I was given a gift of muses when I left my job at the library. One of the teachers made her good-bye gift more of a good luck gift.

She must have found this somewhere at a teaching supply store:

That's Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Dickens, and Woolf. They're finger puppets AND magnets so now they hang to my right.

Before I had this though, I've been drawing on the music of Tori Amos as inspiration since I was a teen. About 5-6 years ago, my mother had one of my favorite posters framed as a birthday gift. It now sits on the wall above where I write along with all my Tori concert ticket stubs. It's nice to have her smiling over me:

Finally, NO space would be complete without inspiration from the goddess herself, Octavia Estelle Butler. This was given to me as a framed gift when I turned 29 and I keep it right next to my keyboard:

So there you have it--my muses! I'm going to get back to writing now but I'm curious...who are your muses and what does your writing space look like? Don't make me tag you!!!! :)
