The Muse

 "Breath is the outer world coming into one's body. With pulse--the two always harmonizing--the source of our inward sense of rhythm. Breath is spirit, "inspiration." Expiration, "voiced," makes the signals by which the species connects. The voice of inspiration as an "other" has long been known in the west as The Muse. Widely speaking, the muse is anything other that touches you and moves you. Be it a mountain range, a band of people, the morning star, or a diesel generator. Breaks through the ego-barrier." Gary Snyder
