January 22nd, in ancient times, was the Festival of the Muses. Each year on this date, the invisible spirits that inspire and watch over all poets, musicians, and artists are honored and invoked with Goddess-inspired poetry, Pagan folk songs, and dancing.
And, to enlist the support of your muse, here are the nine daughters of Zeus to call upon:
1. Callipoe, epic poetry and eloguence
2. Clio, history
3. Erato, love poetry
4. Euterpe, lyric poetry and music
5. Polyhymnia, sacred poetry
6. Thalia, pastoral poetry and comedy
7. Melpomene, tragedy
8. Terpsichore, dancing
9. Urania, astronomy
Finally, an artist clip I made for today's celebration. Enjoy.
