MAGIC LAND WEEK 1
I am in the middle of a busy store on Black Friday. Barely able to grasp why people are bumping into me, my anxiety spikes and I feel the need to scream out load,
"Will you stop invading my space!"
My Fiance pats my arm knowing that the situation is very hectic and frustrating.
I look to my right and see a customer scurrying through the isle's and then suddenly vanish. Surely it is much to late in the night and my mind is playing tricks on me, as it usually does. (I have a highly active imagination). Next I see a man pushing through the crowd. He is gigantic. I nudge my partner's arm and nod my head in the mans direction. My fiance doesn't see what I am in-visualizing. He was a Giant! Large warts. Massive hands... should I even continue?
I knew what was happening. My mind was delving deep into what I consider (MAGIC LAND).
I look around, suddenly enjoying the wild environment. I study people and watch as my imagination transforms them into what I would consider them to be if they really were enchanted.
A smile crosses my face. My anxiety is gone. People may stare at others and judge them by their appearance. I stare at people and create characters.
Before my mind allows the world to disappear, I take one long look at the Giant who is now throwing large amounts of Electronic devices in his puny shopping cart.
He has an elongated face, warts around his nose and eyes, large ears and a round mouth. He is tall and his feet and hands are massive. Brown bushy hair is situated on top of his large head and when he see's me looking at him, he stops his shopping to watch me stare at him.
He turned away from my gaze and slowly I shake my head and blink. Just as quickly as I saw the Giant, he just a swiftly returns back to his normal state. The Magic world is gone. My imagination is finally at rest.
What a fun, entertaining way to look at the world through a different perspective.
(By the way... be aware... entering MAGIC LAND is like reading a book, once you have discovered it... you may never want to leave it alone.)
HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS WEEKS RENDITION OF MY WORLD OF MAGIC :)
