I discovered Caroline Myss' new book Archetypes at the bottom of the mail pile this morning. As someone who works daily with the "Muse" archetype -- helping people every day to access their Creative Muse -- I immediately ripped open the package and read with relish.
Summer may be winding down, but this week proves that the best is yet to come. New singles from Muse, Lana Del Rey, and the xx offer an exciting taste of this fall's musical palette, while Minus the Bear and Yeasayer make for a perfect conclusion to the summer.
The purpose of having a muse is to receive inspiration for creative endeavors. So why shouldn't anyone not necessarily endowed with artistic genius be empowered by a personal muse as a natural component and companion to daily living?
