We’re all fond of magic, and the folklore associated with it. Well, some of us are – for the most part. A mystical energy possessing abilities not entirely unlikely of making dreams come true, or of taking care of our troubles, et cetera? I, for one, have always been fascinated with all kinds of fairy tales – especially the ones where magic is the solution. Aiding the fair youth as he or she sets upon an obstacle-ridden course excelling in their quest ultimately (locating a wishing-well somewhere deep in a legendary forest) or rousing a prince or princess from the most deepest sleep with a few drops of magical elixir dropped over their closed mouths. Do you know?
We’re older now, and magic does exist. Perhaps not in the ways that we imagined before, but oh, it is around. You don’t see it, you feel it. Sometimes the good kind, sometimes bad. But it’s the positive particles you believe in, and want desperately to feel. (I totally get that!) Do not stop believing, okay?
And as a little something-something, here’s a virtual, ornate hand mirror for you, inspired by the one from the Harry Potter series, The Mirror of Erised – for you to reflect upon every once in while when times are troubled and everything feels out of place. It not always is. You know that! So, harness all you’ve got to create your own kind of magic. Ooh, and it isn’t magic, unless it makes you smile. I know that better, now. Don’t be scared, okay?
P.S. Do you guys remember which fairy tale had an ornate hand mirror in their Disney animated movie counterpart? (-:
