I did continue to watch in awe from the sidelines as the Mortal Muses grew and expanded. The projects, the photos, the discussions, the themes, the Flickr pool…all of it just blew me away. Although I didn’t participate, I watched. I followed the Muses on the MM blog, on their personal blogs, on Flickr, on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter and felt honored that they did the same for me. Over this year, I felt like although I have never met them in person, I have gotten to know these ladies beyond their photographs.
This is what have learned: one of us is a constant explorer, one of us has an incredibly busy life and is always starting a new venture, one of us writes with such an open heart that her words move me to tears, one of us has been going through a lot of challenges and changes, but faces them like a champ, one of us is expecting some big changes in the next few months, one of us is wonderful at commenting on all of our blogs and photos, one of us takes photos that take my breath away each and every time, one of us transforms photos of everyday objects into something spectacular, and one of us has such a unique and identifiable style. As it turns out, “one of us” is ALL of us. As diverse as we all are, we are also the same. It may seem strange, but I feel such a connection with these women I have never met in person.
It is both sad and exciting to see the "old" Muses move on and to watch a new set of Muses blossom and create. I look forward to seeing what happens with everyone and welcome all of you to be “one of us” because in my eyes, you already are. You are all Muses to me.
