Sometimes embodied and other times abstract, a muse asks those who call upon it to surrender to unknown wellsprings of invention that exist outside of a singular genius. Within our present moment, we find muses all around us through collaboration, through creative community, and through chosen familiesof artists, performers, and thinkers that inspire us to envision livelihoods outside of our selves. Cummings, in turn, welcomes us into an imaginative lifeworld of intimate and sensitively rendered portraits tha t reflect on the unbounded space of creative self-fashioning.
