Happy Friday to everyone! Today’s blog is going to be short. My son’s 11th birthday is today and I’ve been getting ready for it instead of writing my blog. LOL. I know what was I thinking, right, picking my son over the blog? Well, I can assure you I haven’t been thinking much, but rather running around, doing a lot of housework and making plans. I did squeeze in a little writing yesterday, but the muse wasn’t chatting about the blog. :-( She rarely chats about what I want or need her to chat about.
Well, when I first read this week’s topic the lyrics to “Do You Believe In Magic” kept running through my head. I realize I can be a bit flighty at times and just one word can put strange thoughts into my head—or rather lyrics as the case may be in this instance.
“Do you believe in magic in a young girl's heartThe song was written by John Sebastian for his group, The Lovin’ Spoonful.
How the music can free her, whenever it starts”
“And it's magic, if the music is groovyAnd while the song isn’t speaking of magic, but rather the power of music to invoke happiness and freedom to both the maker and listener, it was still on repeat in my head after reading Sierra’s blog.
It makes you feel happy like an old-time movie”
“I'll tell you about the magic, and it'll free your soulOkay, okay, I know, that’s enough of the lyrics. But, seriously, do you believe in magic? I do. Not the abracadabra type magic though. I need proof before I’m buying that. But I think it would be awesomely cool if we had a Merlin that could do that? Or ????? (insert name for me please) in Harry Potter that could. Please don’t stone me for this confession….*whispers to you all* I have never seen Harry Potter or read the books. YIKES! *ducks rotten tomato thrown at my head*
But it's like trying to tell a stranger 'bout rock and roll.”
What I do believe in is the systematic practice of witchcraft like any Christian would practice their religion. Do I believe they can invoke spirits to do their bidding? Probably. Quite likely. But, once again, I see it relative to a Christian praying for assistance.
To you Witches and Christian’s please understand that I mean no offense to any of you. And if you’re insulted by my analogy, I apologize, but this is my thoughts on it. I know very little about witchcraft—mostly only how pop culture has shown it in television shows like Charmed, which I loved by the way…The Power of Three!!!—and a lot about Christianity because I grew up in the church and most of my family consider themselves Christians. I’ve written a book where the main character is a witch and she has the abracadabra type powers. She also mixes potions. But, that’s only imagination, all in my head, just fluff so to speak, and not an ounce of it is real.
So, really, if you want to stone me, please do so because I know so little about magic and witchcraft. And after you get through stoning me, tell me about magic and/or witchcraft because while I may not know much, the topic truly interests me.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. For me tonight, I’ll have a house full of boys celebrating my son’s 11th birthday. YIKES! *ducks large amounts of testosterone*
