Art my dear muse, how I miss thee? You who have been with me ever since birth, you have been with me filling my head with brilliant imagery. Occupying me with hours upon hours of sheer delight. Just a blank piece of paper and a pencil would bring me to another world, a world that we would share. Sometimes the images are brilliant, they shine with sheer delight, at times somber, sad and lonely, my muse you have always have a way of bringing out whatever it is I feel. You have molded me into the artist you wanted me to be, in your most gentle and encouraging way, you have guided me- my hand, the way I think, the way I draw, the way I color. You have also showed me influences from other artists, how other masters create art, their styles. You have concocted the "me" with bits and pieces of influences, a stroke from this artist, a shape from this artist, and an expression from another. You have stayed with me throughout my days nurturing me as I matured, though I have been true to you life has a way of sneaking into the picture. Reality is a cruel, cruel villain, you have dashed everything my muse has cultivated. Stomped and crushed every idea planted with care with mind numbing mediocrity. Now life has been about paying the bills, putting food on the table, paying the rent. Gone are the joys and flights into worlds you have created. 

Art my dear muse how I miss thee, I know I have forsaken thee this past year, not a scribble nor a line. You have been there waiting silently for me to greet you and caress you. I do hope that when the time comes it'll be like the old times, when everything was just free and easy. That nothing has to measure up to anyone, that days would go by when its just the two of us and nobody else but us. Art, I know you were given to me by God, you are a gift from the Him. I don't know what I did to deserve you, maybe there is a greater purpose that awaits me. Many a day I worry that God might take you away from me, that you would desert me since I have abandoned you. 

Art my dear muse may this year be the year that I reunite with you. May this year be the start of many more years to come. That this year would start the rain to quench the drought that reality has inflicted in my life. I know you are a kind mistress, but you demand time, effort and perfection. That passion for you must be totally complete. You are a jealous mistress to serve and very unbending and uncompromising, it is your way or the highway. You are very territorial, art is art, you are mine and only mine alone. 

I do hope that this would be the year I serve you well and not disappoint you with my waywardly ways. That other muses won't tempt me into serving them instead of you. 

Art my muse, my dear muse, I do miss thee, I miss thee a lot. I hope you miss me too.
