...meaning of a muse.

I am trying to read a little bit of Janice Elsheimer's "The Creative Call" every morning- a Christian response to books like the "Artist Way". What Janice says about the muse is really inspiring- too often, we Christian want to stay so far away from any reference to such things- which is sad. Janice writes how even great Christian authors like John Milton wrote an invocation to his great work Paradise Lost , inviting the Holy Spirit as his muse. The idea of something greater then the artist, using our minds and our bodies, to create is pretty universal- We, Christian artists, need to start giving credit to where credit is due!
