Explorations Chapter VI

Snook Kill Muse

When the word "muse" is mentioned, it is most often refers to another person, usually a female, who inspires creation in the arts and sciences. In fact the term originates in ancient mythology, where each of nine goddesses, the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, who preside over the arts and sciences. I have also found the "muse" in nature, and one of the closest of these is Snook Kill Falls near my home in Saratoga Springs.

    David, your images are so profoundly captivating! My words fail me, as the exquisite beauty you’ve captured and created, not only leave an indelible impression in my mind, they also take my breath away. What marvelous, magnificent work … and such an incredible tribute to the muse of Snook Kill Falls, a glorious part of Mother Earth. We celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day next week, April 22. This place is extraordinarily special! The expression and feeling with your models also inspires and makes me yearn to experience and “be” one with nature in this place. Thank you, thank you for lifting and brightening and blessing us all, by sharing these incredible treasures! ♥
