There is magic, but you have to be the magician. You have to make the magic happen.
SIDNEY SHELDON, Are You Afraid of the Dark?
( Before I start with my blog, I would like to clarify. This is not a review of the novel and neither it is related to any character of the novel. It is an afterthought. )
Whenever I think of the word dark, many images come into my mind like night, death, monsters, moon, black magic, secrets and so on. When we say that we are afraid of the dark, which darkness do we refer to ?
Everyone has monsters under their bed which comes out in the dark to haunt them, but who are these monsters ? Why are we so afraid of them ? Are these one-eyed green gooey monsters or the monsters stuck in our brain ?
The questions will be never-ending and the answers will be vague. There are many interpretations for this fear but the only correct one is what your mind and soul know.
After reading the novel (Though it was not about real monsters), one can’t help but think whether the bad deeds that we do is because our monsters are bigger than our angels or do we do these deeds because we are afraid what the monsters will do if we don’t ?
Well, everybody relates darkness to evil, but what if darkness is in reality the good in real and light is just a faux. The best way to go is to have both the visions.
What are you afraid of ?
