It's a Cruel, Crude Place So Bring Back Magic!

I‘m finally at the point where I can start bringing back as much magic as I possibly can. It’s one of my missions for this year. I don’t know about you and what keeps you as your most artistic self, but for me, it’s magic. How I can perceive and interpret it, anyway. Shimmer, glitter, and other glowy and shiny things abound. Some nostalgia and dreaminess, too.

I aim and hope to be able to get in a different character every month and take at least a couple of photos of it. Maybe perform a little while in it if time and energy let me. So they will all be inspired by songs that are special to me. And I’ll try to play with colors and their meanings too!

 It’s a challenging series that’ll allow me expression, engaging in art forms I enjoy, while paying tribute to works I’ve loved. If you’d like to set an artistic challenge for yourself this year, you can take this as a sign to go too! With what suits you. It can take you out of stagnation and propel you forward if you’re having trouble staying on track.

In this case, to prelude this year’s cycle, I went with songs from some of my all-time-favorite films. Which range from being an “undeniable masterpiece” to “how can you even watch this” (but I don’t care - if I like it, I like it and that’s it). They do move and fuel what I’d consider magical within, which then pour out to all around.

The songs are:
. The Greatest Showman - A Million Dreams
. La La Land - Audition
. Jem & The Holograms - I’m Still Here

This character is sort of a mashup of all this plus me!
“I close my eyes and I can see a world that’s waiting up for me. / So bring on the rebels, the ripples from pebbles, the painters and poets and plays. / There is a story written in the stars, that makes it worth it just to bear these scars.”
