Do You Believe in Magic?
A while back, I watched an Oprah interview with JK Rowling, during which she said “I really don’t believe in magic.” OMG, did I hear that right.? The lady who created Harry Potter and made so many of us believe in magic, doesn’t believe in magic? Seriously? I was quite put out with her for a while. Of course, there were several groups who wanted to burn her books, etc. and she could hardly say her books were just harmless fiction, if she believed in them. Maybe she was just protecting herself. She has since redeemed herself, in my eye’s, since I read this quote by her, “I don’t believe in the kind of magic in my books. But I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.” But that made me wonder, am I a lone adult believing in magic?
I believe almost anything can happen. I am an author and filmmaker’s dream, because it takes very little to suspend my disbelief. In fact, I can believe anything is possible. I believe that if an author creates a world, it has to exist on some level. Thoughts are things right? I like to think “what if ..” and dream about it. I like to believe. I believe that Naria could exist, wizards might be playing quiddich as I type, and Chris Angel can actually levitate. I have encountered Santa Claus and so I know that he is real (but that’s a post for another time). What fun is life closed off to possibilities? What about you? Do you believe the word impossible really says I’m possible? What kind of magic would you like to see? Do you think it could happen?
