The Cranky Muse

Musing for Moka

  Musing for Moka  Thanks to Diana for the nudge to go looking for my missing muse. She and her muse have a tortuous relationship, which apparently works well for both of them.

The Origins of Muse Mayhem

Here is the original post that was the inspiration for my muse mystery and mayhem series. In rereading this early post on muses and caffeine, we had a few chuckles so we’re sharing the goodness with you. Plus we noticed a fun synchronicity. This is the 5 year anniversary of this post.
