The thing about magic

Hello fellow bloggers! Before I begin, I wanted to let you all know that I am keeping the blog hop open for one more day, so scroll down, check out the peeps, follow them, and give them comment love. I'm sure they will all return the favor!

As you can see from the title, today I'm talking about magic. Last night the hubs and I watched "The Sorcerers Apprentice" it was a little cheesy, but it brought a smile to my face. It also got the wheels turning in my head.

Think of all the movies, books, artwork, and general media that talk about magic. The book I'm writing even has hints of it. Why do think that is? It seems like there's always the good magic, and the bad magic, and the magic always has it certian restrictions. Yet, we gobble it up every time (at least I do).

I have theory about why we like magic so much. Part of it is that we want some. Another part is that we like to think of what could be possible. But I think the real reason we like magic so much is that we want to believe that we can all achieve so much more.

Back to the movie last night. The main character was a nerd. His character was the very definition of the word nerd. At the end, he overcomes his nerdiness enough to become as powerful as Merlin, kill the evil Morgana, and still land the girl.

If that's not reaching, I don't know what is. But you know what? I still put myself in his shoes. I feel like the biggest nerd in the world sometimes. Then I see movies like this and I think if I believe in myself, and work hard enough, maybe I'll be powerful enough to defeat my demons.

It makes me laugh, but at the same time, I feel myself hoping. Who knows what will come in the future? Maybe the X-men theory? Maybe a whole magical world that we are unaware of? Maybe we all have some sort of magical potential that we simply need to unlock? Who knows, but it sure is fun to dream.
