WEEKENDS (read time :33)
Your Muse is at war with the demon of distraction and they're both fighting to get your attention—especially on the weekend! The Demon of Distraction knows when the weekend is near because he can sense it in your excited anticipation. However, your Muse doesn’t own a calendar and could care less what day it is. Her only mission is to get her ideas, visions, designs, lyrics and innovations into your thick skull—24/7.

| Support counts |
My artist friends nurture and support my 24-7 commitment to my dreams, but unfortunately a lot of what I call 'civilian' (former) friends don't. They continuously try to weasel their way back into my life and tend to take it very personal that my muse is #1, not them. This is especially true on the weekends, when they have off work and I tend to work harder. Their behavior used to irritate me, but the more artists I replace 'civilians' with, the more I'm inspired by their undying devotion to their dreams as well. Now if I could just get those 'civilians' to read your column, then maybe they'd understand...

Thanx for the reminder and your support Michael. Sometimes the demon is strong enough to make me believe that all my work is total trash and wasted time. The Muse is sometimes on the verge of giving up, but every night at 11:30 pm I grant her an hour walk, rain or shine. With "our" work in the headphones she recovers. The Muse and I are grateful for your reminder that persistence and determination are omnipotent.

Man i feel like my self got wise and courageous and disguised itself as you to give me advice from the future. Just today i was explaining to someone how the muse doesnt care how much an idea might put you out or how hard it might be to execute, it just wants to lay its eggs in your brain. Thankyou for your vision.

| i agree |
we must allow the universe to align it's self for us by constantly reminding it, what it is exactly that we want. It doesn't know what we want, we have to tell it, sing it from the rooftops! Randy Allen Gibson

| Cancelled plans! |
I just canceled all my stupid petty plans for this weekend and I'm locking myself in the studio to work on my album. Wife supports me, kids support me, friends support me and now Michael Dolan supports me! Thanks for the much needed wake up call!
