To celebrate the publication of Elizabeth Mueller's novel, Darkspell, on October 31 (groovy timing!) I'm helping spread the word by joining Elizabeth's Darkspell Launch Spookfesta.
All I have to do is finish a sentence and post a photo:
As Elizabeth says: I'd love to christen Darkspell by brewing up an online "If I had all the magic in the world, I'd ..." spookfesta. On Halloween day and just for fun, post a photograph of *what you'd do with your magic, and share with me what you'd do if you discovered that you had all the magic in the world at your fingertips. Create world peace? Turn the ocean into ice cream? Fly to the moon? The universe is the limit--oops, actually, there are no limits.
So, here is my entry. Well, it's a bit of a no brainer, right? We'd all love a bit of that magic, er, money the often-corrupt 'fat cats' have but use for their own self gratification. We all think we'd be different if we were in their shoes and would actually bring about change, wouldn't we? Well, we'd like to try and today Elizabeth has given us the opportunity to change the world - with magic.
So..."If I had all the magic in the world, I'd...feed all the hungry in the world, give them comfortable homes and pay off everyone's mortgages before the banks reclaim them. Then I'd set up governments that actually practised democracy so we didn't fall down the abyss of shame again. While I was at it, I'd wave my magic wand so all disease would disappear from earth and revive the degraded and poisoned soil and oceans so the world population could enjoy a long and happy life. Because everyone has their needs met, that aggressive gene will be recessed and world peace can be achieved. We will all live in harmony, putting aside our racial, religious and political differences."

Not that I'm saying it's up to America to feed/change the world,
but this is the best pic I found that says what I want...
Wouldn't that be a strange world? Am I an impossible dreamer?
I'm glad Elizabeth has such a powerful magic wand. I've been waiting such a long time to wave it around! Thanks Elizabeth and may your Darkspell weave its magic over all of us...
