The Disagreement


Kay Nielsen


So my muse and I are having a row. She's got all these wonderful ideas she wants to pursue. I, on the other hand, have some commissions to complete before I leave on vacation next week. She is being very obstinate and refusing to help me with the commissions. In fact, she is slowing my work down by assaulting me with fabulous ideas I don't have time or energy to pursue. Don't know how long it will be before we're on speaking terms again. I'm going to whine a little now: why do I always have to be the "adult" in these situations? So wish I could just indulge her.

This is a good problem to have, C. Otherwise you'd be an all work and no play sort of soul or never get anything done. :) War on.

This picture (and conflict) remind me of the ten of wands in a tarot deck. It represents a confrontation of some sort, but more often than not implies that the Querent is the one fighting the battle. However, as Tracey says, "it's a good problem," as you have the higher ground in this battle. Best of luck planning your strategies for conquest!

"So my muse and I are having a row."

Oh how I empathize with you!!!

Even my little blog is tearing me in at least three directions. It's either publishing a daily post, answering comments or visiting my immensely generous visitors who happen to have great blogs too. And we are not even talking about all those beautiful images I want to take, but don't get the time to do.

I wish you here and there a lucky break to follow the call of your muse! I can't wait to see what she is whispering in your ear. :-)
