We Are Not Amused


This saying, attributed to Queen Victoria, is perhaps more meaningful than we know.  Although dictionaries dispute it, it seems one could see an etymology for amuse that means a=”not” + muse=”muse.”  “Without a muse.”  This is what happens when we are just in a state of superficial entertainment, seeing only the surface of things.  When we are “not without a muse,” we are more connected to source of things, to our own creative power and that of the One.
