I want to talk to you today about something I was thinking about in bed the other night – no, not that, something else. I was thinking about the phrase ‘Knowledge is Power’ and I was thinking how knowledge and power are not all that – they’re not the only ingredients you want in your cake.
Of course, if knowledge is power, then does that make ‘Ignorance is bliss’ true? I thought about that for a while too.
What I’ve come up with is this, ‘If knowledge is power, then belief is hope’. And I’m going to explain why I think so…
Take this for example:
It’s a Magna Doodle! I was bought one when I was about 6 or 7 and I thought it was magic. I loved how I could write or draw whatever I wanted and then slap that wee handle across and it was wiped and I had a clean sheet again.
Of course, Magna Doodles aren’t magic at all, but the thing is, I don’t want to know how it works, because I want to believe it is magic. So in this case, knowledge might be power, but it would also make me unhappy. Belief that it’s magic makes me hope that there might be more magic in the world.
So whether you believe in magic, your god, fairies, aliens or anything else that knowledge might be able to disprove, keep believing, because that’s where hope lies. And magna doodle knows, we need hope!

GingerFish Poses – Ultraviolence Pack Flourish Sales Studio August
I’ve blogged Cynful’s Everyday Romper recently, but it’s so darn cute and perfect for my sword slinging that I wore it again (it is an everyday romper after all!)
I’m also delighted to announce a new sponsor on the roster! Lock&Tuft who produce quirky, edgy wigs to make you smile. The los angeles hair I’m showing is a choppy bob and was actually available at SaNaRaE last year but you can go pick it up at their lovely mainstore. Luuush.
GingerFish’s Ultraviolence pose pack is available now at Flourish, but I’ve dropped the mainstore LM too so you can go find it if you read this blog in the future – you clever thing.
