Poetic License...

...I drove up through the mountains today... into the Cherokee National Forest.. the weather was beautiful... no traffic....sunroof open... the scent of the hardwood forest... it was refreshing... but, my little transcendentalist romp fluffed for little.... and so... I find myself still without my Muse... the one I've had in the past has jumped ship now, it appears...

...so, I am going to do as instructed by Mr. Martin, and just "Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter"... I shall polish off the remainder of my Macallan that survived the ordeal last night.. and listen to music...

...as I was driving back, I started thinking of writing a blog about having nothing to blog about... and, dammit, just as I was pulling into the drive, I remembered this post from Velociman.... well, hell.. that killed that idea... so, instead of attempting to fill you all in on my situation, I will leave you with the words of Mr. Crawford... no one could have said it better....

MY KINGDOM FOR A MUSE

Thalmia is obviously making sex romp videos with Shannon's ex. Calliope moved to Starke, where she is cruelly toying with anti-death penalty activists. Erato has been jerking my chain for years. Feels good, but there's little output, if you know what I mean. Clio, Euterpe, Terpsichore, and Polyhymnia are banned from Velociworld for personal reasons, although Clio gets a pass on Nostalgia nights. Urania is an air-head.

That leaves Melpomene, my great go-to gal, and she's in a worse funk than me.

...yeah, yeah... I know it is bad etiquette... or netiquette... whatever.. to link to a post so old, but I'm doing it anyway...

Ha, ha. I'd forgotten about that one. Sadly, I have yet to get my Muse back.

I dispute there being a netiquettal rule against linking to old posts :-)

When it's relevant, it's relevant. I do it all the time, and it's one of the reasons I always tell people to get a working search function on their blogs - if I half-remember some post from way back when, I want to be able to give credit for it.
