Overview

The Museum Muse is no ordinary book of poetry. It's a source of introspection, a philosophy of who were, are, or have been. Written by an award-winning poet it contains verse such as:
" time is only a human construct
because in the totality of things
there is no past, present, or future,
just as there is never an end
and never a beginning
in a seamless ring of gold.
thus, while we examine the past
in a museum of the soul
do we not experience the future as well?
without our invention of time,
without the fête of birth,
without the gloom of death,
we would live forever.

but we do live forever—
—and that is the celebration of life."
