Why we write
by Jeani Kyair
Age Group: Adult
The Full Blue Moon awaits us.
The moon having no light of her own still shines brightly as she reflects the sun's overwhelming energy. (Magic)
She reminds us that we are a reflection of everyone around us. We shine because we are blessed by those around us who believe in us and the things we have focused our efforts on.
This project is blessed by everyone who has put their energy into seeing it move forward.
The Friends of Maddie are united by the fact that they are not afraid to dream, that a simple story of the possiblility of one living a magical life without wands and spells can make its way into print.
When my children we young "Sesame Street" was new, and seemed to be a wonderful way to teach children the basics of reading and numbers with its faced paced, colorful visual images and cast of fantasy characters that interacted with its human characters.
My son loved counting with The Count. He would count, 1 whooooosh, 2 whooooosh, 3 whoooooosh, 4, 4, 4 Haaaa haaaa haaaa ha. Just like The Count.
My daughter was over stimulated by the frenetic action and frankly, the life sized monsters frightened her.
She was one of the children that found the slow and gentle manner and delivery of Fred Rogers, from "Mister Rogers Neighborhood" entertaining while she learned the messages like kindness toward others and taking time to do things right were as important as one's ABC's.
I see the Harry Potter books as a very Sesame Street way of presenting the magic in the world. Fantastic and stimulating but as un-attainable as a friendship with a grouchy monster living in a trash can.
I see "The Unknowing Apprentice" as presenting the ways of a magical life as Mister Rogers would, showing the connectivity between everything, not just humans or other living beings but the connections and obligations one has to his or her environment.
The main character, Maddie, learns that there are always consequences for one's actions or choices and how to accept that which is beyond one's control.
There is just enough fantasy, (well for those who don't belive that animals can communicate with us) , to carry the story along, just like Mister Roger's puppets.
I am hoping that in this age of blurbs, blogs, snippets and sound bites that there is still room for the gentle lessons, wound up in a mystery or two and tied together by characters that live a "Magical" life in a way that is achievable.
When you look up tonight and see the Blue Moon, bask in the blessings of the moment, knowing that there will not be another Blue Moon until 2015 and you are part of this magical world.
Jeani, Maddie and oh yes, Pye the cat.
