The Invisibles

I need to write at least one music-related post, but I’m tired and lazy so instead here’s a quotation:

“There’s a true sense of mystery with magic.  Like you’re having a meaningful dialogue with something bigger than you — bigger than anything you can imagine.   It reaches into what we’ve all agreed are the workings of the world and stirs them around a little, makes a person sit up and pay attention.  Not simply to the experience itself, but to everything around them.  That’s why the great stage illusions — I don’t care if it’s a floating woman or someone walking through the Great Wall of China — when they’re done properly, you come away questioning everything.  your eyes are opened to all sorts of possibilities.”

-from the story The Invisibles by Charles de Lint
