        The pace of life is often humdrum, routine--even boring. The twists and turns within this continuum seem random. Sometimes on the lighter side, perhaps a eureka moment in there. Occasionally profoundly tragic ... where unforeseen events may change things forever, and to our grief. But during those long and mundane stretches we have a great opportunity to drink from the waters of inspiration ... to move toward fulfilling the poetry that our souls call for, quietly, from each of us.

        In classical Greek legend, the Muses gained inspiration and knowledge from drinking from the spring in the city of Peria (in southern Greece). Whether we travel to Peria and drink its spring water or we sit quietly and drink in the inspiration from the larger universe, the results are the same. Eventually we gain insights bound to transform our lives.

        This collection, for instance, was born out of one of my Pierian Spring moments; that was when I decided to collect my scattered notes and mumblings into a coherent bunch of thoughts that I could draw upon.
