Fond of fantasy

October 4, 2007 – Thursday

In the past few days I’ve talked to people in different time zones: one in California and one in South Korea. I remember when I was young trying to wrap my mind around the whole time zone idea. I thought that if you traveled west, you could travel back in time. (Maybe that’s what jet lag is…ha!)

There are certain things I miss about childhood, and that is one of them. Not the difficulty understanding time zones–more like the idea that it was magical. Now I dismiss the idea of magic or corner it in my imagination where I think it belongs. I try to find the magic in everyday things, but it isn’t the same as Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter-type magic. Pity, really. I’d like to think there are vampires and dark lords; it’s just that logical, analytical part of me that laughs it into the back of my head.
