Odilia, multimedia performance >8
Odília is a confused muse.
When she was 7, 8, 9, almost 30 years old, she saw an ad in a newspaper for inspirational tasks and applied. When she arrived at the interview, she was late and there were no jobs left. Odilia felt like the only unemployed muse in the world, and she ran out the door and ran and ran and ran and ran and and ran and ran until she tripped over another muse… Penelope.
