What I think about Magic

I wanted to set my memories down on paper, where I can hold them. You
know, I do believe in magic. I was born and raised in a magic time, in a magic town, among magicians. Oh, most everybody else didn’t realize we lived in that web of magic, connected by the silver filaments of chance and
circumstance. But I knew it all along. When I was twelve years old, the world was my magic lantern, and by its green spirit glow I saw the past, the present, and into the future. You probably did too; you just don’t recall it.

See, this is my opinion: we all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow and told to be responsible. Told to act our age. Told to grow up, for God’s sake. And you know why we were told that? Because the people doing the telling were afraid
of our wildness and youth, and because the magic we knew made them ashamed and sad of what they’d allowed to wither in themselves.

What do you think about this?

  1. I love to share your thoughts for magic and magical life because the feeling is just amazing until life strikes multiple times and reality hits you hard so this is why you start to become rigid and keep your legs on the floor until you see happiness in a Dreamer eyes or a child, you see the passion and enthusiasm so you wish you’re a simple person that still believe in magic and miracles !
    Sorry I guess will not be able to retrieve other comments, already pissed big time from this…Wordpress is making us think that bloggers are ignoring us which is bad!
