Magic – B4B entry

June 13, 2006

I like to think that I believe in magic. Men making ladies disappear and pulling bunnies out of top hats. Especially the bunnies. I had a boyfriend once who would give you a running commentary all the time and completely took all the fun out of it by explaining exactly how it is done. He didn’t believe in magic.

I like mystery, I don’t want to know how that man made that glittery lady in her fancy dress and scary makeup levitate. I don’t want to know how she disappears I just want to revel in the fact that I don’t know. I will not be spending hours and hours making my brain ache by trying to puzzle it out. I want to sit back and hold on to that special feeling that I get when I don’t understand. That feeling that something miraculous has happened right in front of my eyes.

I live for that feeling. Once I came to the realisation that I loved having that feeling and with it came happiness and wonder I started looking for it elsewhere. And suddenly I just couldn’t get away from it. Everywhere I looked I found something new and wondrous and unexplained and that feeling inside of me just grew and grew. How do sparrows fly together in that big, swooping way? No longer did I feel the urge to know I just sat back and watched. How did they build the pyramids? Don’t tell me I don’t want to know. When turtles are born on the beach how do they know which way to run to get to the sea? I have no idea but I will be cheering them on. What was that feeling I had when Paul and I realised his birthday was the day after mine? I have no idea but I felt so undeniably happy in that one moment that science would just take away from the wonder I felt.

A dictionary definition of magic is a mysterious quality of enchantment. Everyday I find something new and wonderful in my life or the world around me. That my friends is enough magic for me.

This part is nothing to do with B4B but I have to add it to this post. It wouldn’t be my 400th if I didn’t!!!!
Something else magical? This is my 400th post. Crikey when I write that it seems like an awful lot. Congratulations to Soulmining, my very own stalker, who scored 10/10 in the competition. Personally I think that our numerous sessions in the pub talking random crap at each other may of helped. Good luck to you dear friend in your Mastermind Career, specialist subject the life and times of Dancinfairy.
Luckily I am meeting up with him this Friday for more of those drinky thingies so i will present him with his prize when we are in the pub. I am guessing due to my hectic schedule it will probably be a pint and a packet of crisps but you never know what I will come up with in that time.
Well, thanks for the company people whether you have read all 400 posts or just this one. Don’t worry I don’t plan on stopping just yet!

    Something mysterious, complex and yet beautiful is an amazing wonderful thing to behold…

    That’s really cool! I’ll have to practice my trick with a ring and a piece of string for Friday night.

    Congrats on reaching 400 posts!

    I really should look to see how many I have posted….

    Although at least I can say I have read all of yours (and I still feel cheated on the contest).
