Truthful Tuesday — Do You Believe in Magic?

Di, of Pensitivity101, is our host for Truthful Tuesday. This week, Di asks us:

Do you believe in magic?

An interesting question. In my book, there are three types of magic.

The first type is producing a desired effect or result through the use of incantations or various other techniques that presumably assure human control of supernatural agencies or the forces of nature. I absolutely do not believe in supernatural magic.

The second type is the art of producing illusions as entertainment by the use of sleight of hand, deceptive devices, etc. Like pulling a rabbit out of a hat. This is practiced by entertainers calling themselves magicians, and I do enjoy watching the illusions skillful magicians can create. But I don’t believe that there’s anything supernatural about what they’re doing in their acts.

Finally, there is what I call emotional magic. I’ve personally experienced this kind of magic the night I met my future wife, the day we got married, the day my daughter was born, and the day my son was born.

And I also believe in…

magic in a young girl’s heart
How the music can free her, whenever it starts
And it’s magic, if the music is groovy
It makes you feel happy like an old-time movie
I’ll tell you about the magic, and it’ll free your soul
But it’s like trying to tell a stranger ’bout rock and roll

    There is always magic to be had by someone believer or not, if the lighting is right 🙂
