Keegan, Gouache, Ink, 23k Gold Leaf by KJ Ward - This is an incredibly beautiful piece of work. It reminds me of all the illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages. Just lovely.
- Mary

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the interview with Mary Travers. Her philosophy, lifestyle and advice are inspirational. Thanks so much for sharing them.

Wonderful! Alpana brings back the nostalgia of real India. She has a way with her writing makes you feel like part of that drama. Part of wondering is beginning a new story in Reader´s mind.

I have been reading Mused magazine and I would really like to commend you on the creation of such a beautiful review. Not only is the art, both literary and visual, of impressively high caliber, but the entire publication oozes professionalism and an extraordinary attention to detail as well as commitment to a laudable ethos. I am enchanted by the breathtaking presentation of the artworks, and awed by the excellence of your accomplishment. The board of reviewers and most of the authors and artists are quite rich in credentials which speaks to the wealth of talent from which you obviously draw. I have been surprised by the scope of your project and deeply moved by many of the pieces.

what beautiful delightful macro images in your magazine by Mark Berkery ... I love the front cover image of the grasshopper ... also his simple insightful expression and depth of knowledge of nature´s reflection through himself, gives me great faith for the future tenderness man can delve the depths too ... and more importantly live love unconditionally. thank you

Congratulations on an excellent publication.

The design, use of colour and overall quality are all most impressive.

I really enjoyed holding and reading this issue and have placed the magazine on my coffee table so that my visitors also can admire it.

It is invidious to select individual contributions, but I do think that Mark Berkery´s insect photographs are superb and Robert F. Bradford´s play is first rate and its enigmatic climax lingers in my mind. I´m still thinking about it a week after my first read!!

“Oops”, “Red Lace Dragon” & “Robber Fly, although yucky, were well depicted, especially their eyes. I was beginning to think that the Art & Photo section was all about insects in this issue. Good photos but not my favorite subject. “The Face of Nature” was actually peeking at me. I would like to have “Indian Blanket” & “New Mexico Sunrise” (I can relate after living in NM) in my curio cabinet. Roses are my favorite flower, so “Pink Rose” is a winner and so was the beauty in Marigold. “Lantana Taking Flight” is strangely beautiful especially the buds. There is pure beauty in “Waving in the Wind”. “Nature’s Faucet” is as refreshing as the scenic view where it was taken. Sesame Street would be proud to showcase “Standing Out of the Crowd”. One doesn’t get many chances to see wildlife as that in “Eco Pond”. And finally one could appreciate such sad beautiful eyes of “Puffin”. All the Art work and Photography is to be commended.

I enjoyed the inspiring words that Erika gave in her “Letter to Our Readers”. Thank you.

”Blessed” caught my attention especially because of the word “Asthma”, which I discovered after reading a little bit of the piece. God does move in mysterious ways & I too am a testimony of His healing touch – no matter who the minister may be. My question to the writer is, “Are you still free from Asthma”?

“A Mother’s Love” is such a sweet story. We mothers sometimes tend to set aside our own wants & needs for the needs of our children, time & time again.
