This blog, A Home for your Muse, is written to inspire you and delight you. There are many definitions for a muse. The one most prevalent here is ” a guiding genius”. Each of us has a genius within us that is asking to be utilized. We change dramatically over time and our genius changes along with us. Our muse has moods and needs. That is why we may go to school with one goal and create a career with another revenue stream. Our muse does that. Our muse is a creator.
In this blog, change will be a recurring theme coupled with the freedom of movement. It is okay to change your mind, it is okay to follow your inner guidance and it is better than okay to see decisions manifested in your environments. That is how you make a home for your muse. You think it, move it, delight in it.
Here is an example:
I traveled last week and returned home to find some stargazer lilies in my kitchen under a light. One was in full bloom, but the rest were closed and waiting. After four days, they were still closed and waiting. Like me. I needed something to happen, I needed to create something and I was waiting for permission, the right time, a perfect opportunity. Yesterday, I noticed that one of the lilies was struggling to open so I changed their location to the living room where they would get full sun in the morning. This morning, I looked in at them and three more were blooming. Overnight. One day of shining a light and they were encouraged and opened.
My muse has been telling me to do a blog for a very long time. The opening of the lilies and the beginning of the blog coincide and complement one another. I encourage you to have your homes and offices speak the language of your muse. In signing off, you may want to think about changing one thing today, a picture, a point of view, a place for a lunch date. See what happens.
I will talk to you tomorrow. I have to go now and have a conversation with my muse. Thanks for taking the time to visit.

Wonderful to see your blog Ellen! I look forward to your posts and will share them generously with my Twitter pals.
Natalie, thank you for passing this on. I do appreciate it and you.
Thanks for this blog…the thoughts are timeless and wonderful!
Thank you so much, Diane. I so appreciate your feedback.
I have been searching for my muse and didn’t realize that’s what I was searching for. This certainly explains why I have been going through amazing changes. Thanks El for the guiding light and keep the blog coming!
Thanks MJ, as you honor your muse, it will get easier and a lot more fun!
I like the idea of changing one thing each day. These days seem to be filled with so much inner change that some change in the immediate environment would be a very good reflection of that and as you say stimulus for the next right thing too.
I am so glad that this appeals and it truly gives a visible meaning to “one day at a time.” Change is a process as you know and you are the master/mistress of it!
Great start Ellen glad to see this new beginning for you
so great to see you entering this world! My tag line on my card is shine a light on your life, so I am totally with you! Hope to see you soon. Will be in your neck of the woods for a quick 24 hours this weekend, so not enough time for a coffee, but hopefully next visit I’ll look you up!
Light is a life-giver, Lori! Thank you for visiting!
I changed one thing in my office last week that set off a chain reaction of changes. Shedding what no longer fits makes room for what’s next.
Thank you for your musings Ellen. Beautiful and inspiring as ever.
Thank you for sharing this. Lana! I am so glad that it resonated.
Very nice, Ellen! A lovely forum for you to still stay focused on writing while treating us to some of it! Thank you!
Hi Ellen, I love this! Funny, last week I had the inspiration to change a few things in my home and pow! Things are moving fast. Isn’t this fun to live life and see what pops up next?
Way to go El! YOU are the best!
