My mind wanders elsewhere, far away, wanders on and on….to untamed places, untamed creatures, untamed thoughts.
“We all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds,
forest fires, & comets inside of us. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get told to be responsible. Told to grow up.
You know why we were told that? Because the people doing the telling were afraid of our wildness and youth, & because the magic we knew made them ashamed & sad of what they’d allowed to wither in themselves.”
― Robert McCammon
