Enlightenment

I do believe she's reaching toward enlightenment...

Yes, you may be right, Coyote. I am genuinely happy for Musie in this quest.
I'm wondering (selfishly), though, if enlightenment makes for good reading...Of course, I wouldn't wish her all the pain and disappointment she felt with M for my own reading pleasure. But it was damn good reading! The woman is able to express things when she is struggling in ways that most of us wouldn't dare.
I guess we just need to see where Musie is going with this.
I also think we need to have a party to celebrate the return of Musie.

1) A Party? Aggie, the last time you managed to attend a "party" with the rest of us, we had a shipwreck and you spent months in some sort of amnesiac fugue.

2) If Oprah is her model, I think Musie will be of interest in her enlightened state.

Speaking of enlightenment, Aggie, weren't your bandages supposed to come off June 30? Perhaps we could also celebrate your new look at the party.

I'm afraid the bandages weren't ready to come off...

The earliest confessional writing I've ever heard of is a book appropriately called "Confessions" (it is by St. Augustine, so perhaps a tad-overly religious for the Dwarf perhaps.)

The book describes the author's years of misery en route to what he considered enlightenment. Most people are moved and inspired by the miserable and morose Augustine of the early chapters. I find it hard to read, though compelling, because with well written trials and tribulations, an empathetic reader may be prone to melancholy along with the writer.

I am more than happy, as a reader, to reach the epiphany and revel in the writer's enlightenment. Although artists have always had an easier time painting hell than they do heaven, the ones who can pull it off (like Salvidor Dali) do so magnificently.

So here's to the 5th Muse's happiness! May it bring joy and peace in (most importantly) her life... but also in her writing.

You're right about me on that one, Evo-man!

On to things I can talk about, is it just me, or is BlogAdmin getting a little obscure with the side columns cams? The Wellington Street Irregulars?

Is this some rival gang? Are they perhaps metablogging some parliamentarian? The "Fifth Minister" perhaps? Who talks about her hopeless crush on "S"?
