#Muse Media: Change and #Junot Diaz

 Muse Media

#Muse Media is a series of  simple 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.

“She would be a new person, she vowed. They said no matter how far a mule travels it can never come back a horse, but she would show them all.” 
Junot DíazThe Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

I love this gutsy quote. The “in your face ” style epitomizes Diaz work.

Change is often hard. How is the woman in the quote going to succeed? 

In what ways do you manage change?

Muse Media: Time and Louise Erdrich

 #Muse Media

The Passage of Time

“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?
