Magic and Reality: Friends or Foes How Early Folklore Illustrates the Connection between the Human and Faery Worlds

“Have you ever wondered why magical tales and myths captivate your mind and heart so deeply? What is it that has us reeling with delight and enchantment over those stories that weave the magical with the mundane – what is this powerful longing that they evoke within us?

“For many of us, the ‘real world’ seems to have lost its magic and wonder. The sensations and beliefs we once held as a child that said anything was possible become more and more difficult to hold on to as we grow up. This lackluster reality has many of us by the toes, and we can’t seem to escape the growing coldness we feel as its result.”

Readers and writers of fantasy and magical realism will enjoy this post by Diomira Rose because she says magic and mainstream reality can–and actually do–coexist. As she puts it, they don’t cancel each other out.

But outside of books, how do you experience it? You’ll find your clues in myths, legends and fairy tales–and, perhaps, an open mind.
