|The Muse, out on the heath|
My final acknowledgement will simply be referred to as The Muse. Her official designation in The Den is Mascot of the Muses to represent the many Muses that came before her and, to my mind, have gone largely under-appreciated. The Den will be on a crusade to elevate the Muse to her rightful place as a driving force behind great works of Art. As an ambitious man who wishes his Muse to receive her just due, it will be highly motivating to produce something of high artistic merit so I and others can toast my Muse for showing the way. Muses either by their own design or by some other mystical force nudge artists thru their often disordered life towards the beauty they can see, hear, and feel but can't quite get to without help.
