I’ve been sitting here for the past few hours, doing my best to signal a positive muse for October’s star cast and even though she tugged and teased at my awareness, alas, she is conserving her magic for the time that I and we really need it. So the best that I could wrangle at this point is “The Muse Of Detached And Ironic Indifference.” Well I guess it beats “The Muse Of Uncontainable Rage And Limitless Fury.” Lucky for you, lucky for me, since my son still needs the true north of my moral influence for at least the next twenty years.
So the cool muse immediately drew my attention to Yeats’ classic and prophetic poem, The Second Coming. The lines she kept ringing around my head were the following:
“The best lack all conviction,
while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.”
Coming from The Muse of Detached and Ironic Indifference, I would expect nothing less. Let’s face it boys and girls, this isn’t business as usual and for some folks, these times are downright scary and yet, The Muse is conveying to me, to share with you Mick Jagger’s slightly annoyed pleas to the freaked out crowd at Altamont to “Just cool out.” I’m not sure how comforting this is, but we’ll both just have to trust The Muse.
