down the rabbit hole
A Mad Midsummer's Dreamhatters Tea-party
Lewis Carroll and Shakespeare collide on July 21 for A Mad Midsummer's Dreamhatters Tea-party that is some CRAZY tea, dude!

What is creativity, afterall, if it's not combining concepts or associations to come up with a good idea or in this case, some aMUSEment?

And what the heck does a teaparty like that look like? Stay tuned. The Sort-of-Mid-July 21 issue will have all the details. (and if you have any writing, thoughts, or experience associated with  such an event, get them to a nunnery at info@themuseisin.com).

I know you want to go out to play, cause it's summer and almost the 4th of July, so I'm going to keep this issue short.  Plus, I'm leaving for Costa Rica tomorrow to wade rapidly through the whitewater of my family who lives there, so today I'm busy getting buoyant for that adventure- just ask Alice. If you don't hear from me next month, call 911.

July, Oh My

June, a ten second thought from Australia! from Caroline Sarah:
Just as I thought it was safe to go in the water
Underpants became see through
Never again will I wear cotton underpants in the surf
Except if I have just had a wax done!

July Poem from Leah Ocean
azzy, jingly, jumping joy
Undulating willfully through the day
Laughing outrageously for no reason at all
Yielding to the Muses' call

Got one for AUGUST? Send it to info@themuseisin.com 

July 2 is Compliment Your Mirror Day (I didn't make this up) I think you can write a compliment and stick it on your mirror for the rest of the month (the rest of the year if you're bold)... go ahead.. 

Other prompts:
Combine the following words, add more.. see what happens, make a poem, write prose, just make something up.. the words will take you with them:
mirror, tea-party, tree-top, shudder, underneath, cream cheese, lovely, understood, bring,  81, giggle, red, read, jiggle, landslide.

Keep going with this sentence:
It was the third of July and my mirror started talking...
