when i grow up.

i want to be a muse. i mean i suppose i will just have to settle for being amusing but i really want to be A Muse.

here’s what’s up. mythically speaking, the muses were the greek goddesses who were fortunate enough to make presiding over arts their job. people just said, “Invoke thy aid to my adventurous song”* “help a brother out, muses,” and the muses helped out. ok, ok maybe they didn’t actually do anything, and maybe they aren’t real, but if it was a legitimate career option, i’d be all over that.

and i do in the least want to be inspiring. so even if i don’t make you want to create a song, or a poem, or a painting, i hope i at least make you want to do, and be. (fill in your own blanks; they come after “do” and “be”) and it is in this vein of thought i give you the following:

one of my favorite ted talks, a super sweet slow jam, and an awesome collaborative painting.

most cool things i find come from Ted or Booooooom.


One thought on “when i grow up.

  1. I absolutely love Ted Talks! I wish more people knew about them. I have brought them up in class and I am surprised to find my professors never heard of them.
