The sequel to Muses, the first Memoir, has come to me naturally, meeting women who became Muses. Some of them have been with me for many years. And since my art exhibition called: Musai (Muses), where I depicted my artistic response to the image of the Classical Muses with a contemporary style, and was accepted by the Fine Arts School of Athens, at their gallery in Plaka, the Muses seem to have honored me with their presence, whenever I write, draw, and paint. They have been the motor for my artistic endeavors, creating poetry and prose, drawings, and paintings. I have been visited, especially by three Muses, who invited me to dance with them. I gladly followed and could achieve an inspired record with my second book: MUSES II - The Poet who enjoys dancing with his Muses.

Z J Galos

Born in Eastern Austria, close to the Hungarian border, he witnessed as a young man the horrors of a nation's suppression, erupting in the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. He finished his education in art and architecture in Vienna, married, and sailed for the Cape of Africa, an adventure that followed his childhood dreams. He had drawn African animals for his art classes, but the time had come to see them in their natural habitat.
Meeting a varied facet of people and cultures, working as a draughtsman in an engineering office, as an architect for a cultural center, and as a coordinator for craftsmen and professionals, he made good use of his language skills traveling throughout Southern Africa.
During a trip to Lesotho, a native artist showed him rock paintings with their stark palimpsest outlines and with typified movements of animals and humans. It made a lasting impression on him and influenced his artistic work.
His vast collection of drawings and slides had been lost during a change of domiciles, but further studies of the art of the San people reawakened his dormant artistic longing for expression of his art, filling sketchbooks with drawings and notepads with poetry and prose. While revisiting the capitals of Europe, he sensed the bond of art being borderless and free, reaching out across continents into the world.
During a visit to Greece, he was accepted into a circle of artists and poets, who encouraged him to continue his art and a friend introduced him to the works of famous Greek poets.
In South Africa, he joined the writing and poetry workshops of Writers Write. It was to open the floodgates of his creativity.
He decided to travel through Greece and visit its sites of antiquity, read up on Classical mythology, and enjoy translations of Greek poetry and prose.
He settled 2013/14 in Klosterneuburg-Weidling. Poet Nikolaus Lenau is buried here. Franz Kafka has visited here. Their writings will always be an inspiration.
