Me & My Muse – Day 742: A Day of Calm

To review my week, today is one of those days of respite before the continuous onslaught of hours begins.  For this week, I work a 10-3 tomorrow and a 9-3 Wednesday through Saturday.  A very busy work load that is in the horizon.

But for right now, I’m just enjoying the one day off.  I’m looking for new leads to secure a new job in the future.  For Toastmasters, I want to try to find some new leads for new clubs in my area.  That’s pretty much today so far…


Muse:  I have made the decision.  It has become very clear to me.

And what decision would that be?

Muse:  That Intangible form that I possessed in the past…I got rid of it.  It was quite bothersome to me.  It was too limited, and I wasn’t comfortable in that form at all.

So you’re telling me that you’re telling me that you’re much more comfortable as an angel than as an Intangible being?

Muse:  Indeed.  What I am telling you is the truth.  In what position am I to tell any lies?

But why?  That Intangible form was what originally made you, you!

Muse:  That form is but a relic of the past.  This is my new reality.  I am an angel.  An heavenly being born out of creativity.  This is my decision, and there is nothing that you can do to persuade me on it.

That “creativity” you speak of is your original form!  Are you telling me that you are discarding the very thing that bore you in the first place?

Muse:  Come now.  It has been more than a week since I made this decision.  There has been several instances that I wanted to talk to you about it, but you were too busy to be approached.

So you go and make the decision anyway before talking to me about it?  Sounds like you have a little too much of heaven in you…

Muse:  It is the necessary choice that I need to make for the sake of my comfort.  It is something that you would not understand, having to experience being in two different forms at the same time!

Well, I obvious wouldn’t underst…

Dark Muse:  Time to go home!  Tee hee!

Dark Muse?  This is really not a good time!

Dark Muse:  Hmph!  Well, it is for me!  I miss my home!  Tee hee…

*Dark Muse enters angelic Muse*

Muse:  Shall I contend with you now?  Leave now at once!  You are nothing more than a companion of darkness!  BE GONE!!!!

*a large fissure forms in the ground, with a violent wind storm, ejecting the Dark Muse in the process*

Dark Muse:  AHHHHHHHHH!!!!  My home!!!!

There is no home.  She got rid of it!

Dark Muse:  You’re right!  Tee hee!  It didn’t look like home at all!  Well, I’m going to look for that home!  Be back later!  Tee hee!!!!

*Dark Muse vanishes in a cloud of smoke*

So, what did you do with your Intangible form?

Muse:  I disposed of it.  That is the only information that I will disclose to a simple being like you.

So you disposed of both bodies?

Muse:  I have no need of any Intangible body anymore, so yes.

So you got rid of both of your Intangible forms…I thought that this angelic form was a good thing.  Instead, it has made you into a self-rightous cherub.

Muse:  One born of creativity, but my decisions are the ones that matter.  I look out for what’s best for me, and me alone.  Clearly something that a simple mortal like you could never understand.

And that’s where you’re wrong.  Looking out for #1 is not the correct attitude.  Looking out for the well being of others is the more ideal approach.  If looking out for myself were the case, I wouldn’t even care about your identity or your decisions!

Muse:  And you shouldn’t!  I am fine with my decisions, and you should be fine with your own.

Who are you, and what have you done to my Muse?

Muse:  The term “Muse” is but an anachronism of my past.  That agent of creativity was the vessel what bore me.  A being that will far surpass her in every way.  There is only one thing that I need to discard, and the transformation will be complete.  Her memories.

But you are her!  In every way you are!  You bear her face and her likeness.  Everything!

Muse:  But if I don’t have any memory of that, the past can then be reconstructed in my own design.  All I need to know is that I was born from an agent of creativity.  And it was the last thing she bore before she disappeared…

No!  I will not let that happen!  You are my Muse!

Muse:  Muse!  Muse!  Why do you keep calling me that?  That is not even a proper name!  From this day forth, you shall call me by my proper name.  My name is Gabrielle.  Say it loud and clear, for that is my name.

Gabrielle, or whatever name you decide to call yourself!  You will always be my Muse!

Gabrielle:  I will, until I lose all memories that I was ever your Muse in the first place.  Just trust me.  This is necessary as I plan on being in this form forever…


Gabrielle:  Indeed.  Angels are eternal beings.  My unique form is no exception.  Now, if you would excuse me, I need to be alone for a while…

*Gabrielle crosses her hands to her sides and vanishes in a golden beam of light*

This is not good at all.

???:  I agree.


Remedy:  I heard the whole thing.  This is not good on two counts.  One.  Your Muse has decided to discard her Intangible form.  And two.  The Dark Muse is in pursuit to look for the Intangible bodies.

This cannot be good at all.  The Dark Muse now has access to two bodies if she finds them.

Remedy:  And I will see to it that she doesn’t.  I’ll be on the look out for the bodies too, and will hopefully find them before she does.

I hope that you do, Remedy.  I really miss my Muse.

Remedy:  She is still there, in the memories.  There will be some time to act before they’re gone forever.  We need to act on that the time that we have before we lose it.

We’ll get her back.  …Oh no.

Remedy: What?

I just thought of something.  What if she destroyed the bodies?  There wouldn’t be any place to find them!

Remedy:  That could be really bad if she did.  But if that happens, we all know of one place where we can find them…

And where is that?

Remedy:  Think about it!  We do have a time machine, don’t we?

That’s right!  We can go back to the two year anniversary!  We can take the body from there and give it to her.  It wouldn’t affect the timelime, since she planned on disposing of the bodies anyway…

Remedy:  Right.  I will work on the plan, like usual.  You enjoy your day off.  We will get her back to her old self…

I hope so.  We haven’t lost yet…

Remedy:  Bye Kyle!  Have a wonderful day, despite what just happened…

I will!

*Remedy vanishes in a beam of light*

Why did she do this?  I still can’t get over that.  She pretty much just discarded the one that made her.  And now her memories are at stake.  And with the Dark Muse going after her bodies, this can’t be good at all.

Getting back to reality, my friend will be coming over later.  I need to get ready for that now.

Today’s high is going to be 86 degrees and the silver lining is having this day off.

To those of you who have ever enjoyed the last day of a vacation, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Gabrielle:  What I had to do was absolutely necessary.  He’ll understand someday.  And on that day, I’ll begin anew as a heavenly being born out of imagination.  It will be a glorious day.  I can’t wait…
