The Muse beckons you to look for inspiration around you. We witness a Mer in repose, looking into a shard of glass reflecting the eye of another being. Is it a vision of self or someone else? Perhaps it’s the gaze from another being – a Fae? a Fallen? one of the First Men? Perhaps the result of a Djinn granting a wish to see through another’s eyes. There are so many elements where we can find inspiration, even through others around us that influence our thoughts and creativity. Understand that although we can emulate the inspiration, we should be conscious of making it one’s own and let it represent our individuality without theft of another’s work. Honor the Muse!
