Q: What exactly is a Muse?
A: According to Webster’s, muse is either a source of inspiration or thinking or saying something in a meaningful way. I usually think of a muse as a noun, as someone who inspires us in a meaningful way, but lately I have been much more intrigued by muse as a verb. I believe when we muse on something – an issue, an idea – we allow ourself to ask questions. I believe answers only come when we are brave enough to ask the tough questions. We are at a point in human history where we have some big questions to ask. That leads me back Muse as a noun; we need people who can inspire us to ask the big questions. Muses inspire us to muse.
