My New Muse

Yes.  It's the Virgen de Guadalupe.   She is the "perfect model of wife and mother" according to the back of my $2.99 candle that I picked up at Kroger yesterday.  My candle has a slightly jazzier Virgen (yes, that is how it is spelled on the candle) and I just love it.  I am burning it every day on my desk while I write.  

And, yes.  I do think that she will work for me even though I am not a believer in the traditional stuff of Christianity.  She is just so cool in her crazy print cape and dress and fabulously fashionable crown.  I love her.

I would post some other news but I have to get together a little portfolio of my writing so that I can submit it to an English prof at IU.  I am trying to get into a course without pre-requisites and have to submit some writing.  Wish me luck.  Oh, that's right. I probably won't need luck now that I have my Virgen of Guadalupe on my desk.  She rocks.
