Body, Heart and Mind are waiting for Inspiration . They need Inspiration to write but as always, it isn’t easy to get her to appear when they need her. The last time Inspiration paid them a visit; Body, Heart and Mind had to jump off a cliff.
There isn’t a cliff anywhere near where they are so Body, Heart and Mind do what Mind thinks can draw her in. They bombard her with text messages which say, “Inspiration, we need you. Please come”.
Time passes, and Inspiration does not come.
“I’m tired. I want to rest,” says Body, yawning.
“We need you to be awake when Inspiration comes.” Mind says.
Body decides to send a different text message to Inspiration, “Inspiration, we need you. I’m tired. Please come soon.”
The phone vibrates and Body reads the response, “Abandon all hope, only then shall I come.”
Mind stands up, paces back and forth, and then blurts out, “What does that mean, abandon hope? I won’t abandon hope! I need hope to get this writing done.”
At that moment, Phobos, their pet dog starts tugging at Mind’s pants.
“Mind, I think you should take Phobos for a walk.”
“That’s a good idea Heart. I don’t think Inspiration is coming. I give up. Come Phobos, let’s go for a walk.”
As soon as Mind and Phobos get out the door, a lady in a tutu appears in the room.
“Hello my friends,” she greets Body and Heart.
“Oh sweet inspiration, you came.”
“I’m happy to be here. Where is Mind?”
“He went out to take Phobos for a walk.”
“Perfect! It’s hard to make Magic with Mind around. He always hope that he can control my magic. I just wish he learns how to give up control sooner and let us do our work.”
“Are you ready to make magic?” Inspiration asks.
“We are ready.”
Inspiration sings a song. Heart and body dance with each other to her song. Words start to appear on the screen of the computer. The trio is surrounded by Inspiration’s creative light.
When inspiration sings the last note, she says, “It is done.”
“This is wonderful,” Heart and Body say.
The door opens and Mind yells.
“Inspiration - you’re here. Let’s start working?”
“Hi Mind. We’re finished. Read this and tell us what you think.”
Mind reads the piece, “This is horrible. Inconsistent tenses. Missing punctuations.”
“My dear friends, I’d love to stay but I need to go,” Inspiration disappears.
Heart says to Mind, “Can you do us a favor and edit the piece? Make it better.”
“I will make it perfect.”
Heart and Body smile. They are happy with the piece but they trust that Mind will not be satisfied with it until he thinks it’s perfect.
“Good job Mind. Whatever can we accomplish without you?” Heart gushes.
“Nothing,” Mind says.
“Can I go to sleep now?” Body says.
“Go ahead and sleep Body. We are done for today. We did well,” Heart tells Body.
