“In the Realm of the Muses,” a peace symbol on her forhead and a dragonfly at her breast which is hovering over another female face. The backgroud is an old watercolor painting (which has been resting in a drawer for many years) suggestive of an open door, but chaos surrounds the door, and the moon rests in the upper left corner. She holds a key in her mouth. She is a warrior and her secrets are many. I feel like I’m reading a tarot card! Maybe I am! A symbol of my own creative desires, struggles, and occasional triumph. The dragon fly, which I recently found tucked in a letter, was given to me some time ago by a very dear lady who always gave me such genuine approval, and support. I knew as soon as I found it that it was no accidental finding, and I knew it was the perfect symbol for this muse!
