For me, the muse arrived as a result of a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, now quite a few years ago. And it propelled me to react, contemplate, choose, feel myself along the way in poetry, or musings as I called them in two books of that title. Recently I had a different kind of chance to “muse” in a 30 minute radio blog interview with my friend Doug Foresta, and read some poems. Doug had told me in no uncertain terms, “these books are not just for those with chronic illness.They’re for anyone of a reflective nature who allows him/herself to experience life’s ups and downs.”
