#Muse Media is a series of short posts, looking for our muse by mixing prose with other media. If this was in the form of a Haiku with an image, it might be called a Haiga. For the moment let’s enjoy the prose of some wonderful authors.
“Time is the water in which we live, and we breath it like fish”
Karen Louise Erdrich, known as Louise Erdrich, (Little Falls, Minnesota June 7, 1954) is an American author of novels, poetry, and children’s books featuring Native American heritage.
Erdrich is widely acclaimed as one of the most significant writers of the second wave of what critic Kenneth Lincoln has called the Native American Renaissance. In April 2009, her novel The Plague of Doves was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. In November 2012, she received the National Book Award for Fiction for her novel The Round House
The quote exemplifies the incredibly rich prose of Louise Erdrich. I have to wonder whether she labors for hours to come up with such a phrase, or if her muse guides her into a flow of beautiful language. This quote is what prompted me to start this series.
Despite it’s quantifiable nature, the notion of time often feels very subjective.
In what ways are you effected by time in your life?
