Inspirational Friday

Inspirational Friday a day that dedicated to art. The day when Muse come down to the Earth and gives inspiration to us. By the way our nickname consist a “Muse” too, because in Ukrainian “Muse” would sound like “Muza”. But what is more interesting in Ancient Greece Muses were considered as goddess of inspiration of literature, science and the arts. According to mythology they are daughters of Zeus. Sometimes Muses referred as a water nymphs – a young, beautiful ladies, whose soul personifies water’s spirit in a woman’s body. So today is the right day to do arts: writing poems, drawing or painting pictures etc. Many of us forget to devote time to creativity, but it’s really important to do it at times. Creativity distracts us from boring and usual work, problems etc. That is very important to take a rest and to take care of our mental health.

It seems like a muse swam near me, I felt her push in my chest and a way of an inspiration swept over me. I couldn’t do anything except of creativity. So I sat on the seaside and trusted up in my arms, they carried me on the fantasy’s flow. And I could do nothing to it.

I smell the air
and taste the breeze.
I sense a presence there;
a kindred spirit next to me
that hovers everywhere.

Jiminy Cricket




Where art thou, Muse, that thou forget’st so long
To speak of that which gives thee all thy might?
Spend’st thou thy fury on some worthless song,
Darkening thy power to lend base subjects light?

Return, forgetful Muse, and straight redeem
In gentle numbers time so idly spent;
Sing to the ear that doth thy lays esteem,
And gives thy pen both skill and argument
.
Rise, resty Muse, my love’s sweet face survey
If time have any wrinkle graven there;
If any, be a satire to decay,
And make time’s spoils despis√®d everywhere.

Give my love fame faster than Time wastes life;
So thou prevent’st his scythe and crooked knife. 

William Shakespeare

We hope after this post of #summer_serenade all of us will think about adding time to create.
