Capturing the fairies light Imprisoning them at night They can take neither flight Nor stand and fight I wonder who might behold this sight And think they have the right to capture the fairies light. It is such a blight Against the magic of light The fairies must take fright As they try to sparkle in the night For those who believe and share their delight The fairies will still shine bright And hold on tight To their special light And that is alright. To wish for a fairy good night.
Creating original ideas is a bit like enjoying original sin. Hmmm? Are my thoughts sinful? What is sin? Is that a feeling or a thought? Is there anything original under the sun – or moon?
Is thinking required to activate feelings? Or do feelings need to be felt before thought can be activated?
This circular argument reminds me of Descartes. “I think therefore I am” I doubt; therefore I think? This is the idea that when we doubt, we cannot doubt that we doubt or think, for doubting is just a form of thinking. All through the history of the ‘thinking man’ this is the question and perhaps this is the only thing that sets humans apart from other animals?
I’m a thinking thing then? What do you think?
So I write to seek and answer questions – of myself – of the world – of the universe?
