Muse: A source of inspiration and a guiding spirit.
Today’s Muse is the little girl, a toddler learning to walk.
Her adoring parents following her every step as she toddled across the parking lot. Before those doting parents could help her she determinely tried to step up onto the curb.
Her little face scrunched in thought her toe caught the edge of the curb and she landed with an almost audible smack right on her chin. I expected immediate tears as her mom covered her face with her hands and as her dad leaned over her, but wait! Something inside him stopped him from going to her rescue, she struggled to her feet and thought about those tears but changed her mind. She looked right at me and gave me a big bright smile.
She looked at that curb and carefully stepped up, a little tipsy – but she caught her balance to the relief of the three adults watching her. Laughing in the moment she continued on her journey.
My hero and today’s Muse.
