The Magic We Make.


Picture source: Waliya Najib Photography


I like cliff-hangers. They leave so much more to be desired, to be imagined... to be created. It gives you a sense of reality and creativity in a mix, an unpredictable outcome. It's the perfect blend. But every now and then (mostly now) expectations have disappointments to follow and so the perfect blend forms in our minds but it does not happens. And of course not, didn't we all learn eventually in life that there was no such thing as magic and it was all tricks. So life plays a trick, it all just ends right there in our heads, and as we face time and life, in the back of our mind, the out come to that cliff-hanger keeps altering, forming and deforming. But it's not pointless. Magic might just be an illusion but the real play, the trick, it can result in lots of good; it can lead us to faith even if for only a while, it enchants us and puts a smile on several faces and for a moment, a tiny moment we imagine ourselves standing right there up on the stage awestrucking people with the magic we make.

  2. I don't really like cliffhangers so much. I always feel bad if I write one. I do know how well they can work though.

    1. Well I know illusions are much better than reality but it helps to know the difference when you step in the 'practical world'.

  4. Cliffhangers are such a tease. I can't take them most of the time because the wait just kills me. >.<
    However, the way you have put it here I am forced to think otherwise. It won't be incorrect of me to say that you create magic, with your words, right here, in front of me. :)

    1. Thank you so much!
      There's alot more to cliff-hangers. They just leave you muddled about the story but you do get to an outcome and at times it's what you've been looking for.

  6. Cliff-hangers, they kill me!! Seriously, I'm one of those who love spoilers ;)

    But the way you described magic was really charming. Magic is something that elates my heart and makes me a tad bit more of a believer in fantasies. I'm charmed and enchanted by your words :)

  7. Cliffhangers are fine as long as they aren't too abrupt and leave me tearing my hair out by the roots!
    That's why I prefer watching and reading stuff when all the parts in the series are out!
    And magic you do make girl...a lot!:)
