Stevie Nicks Once Said…

There is part of me that has to depend on fantasy, because if you can’t be somewhat of a fantasy person, then you can’t write. – Stevie Nicks

I couldn’t agree more with Stevie… as a writer I feel that when I write part of it comes from things that you know that are true but some are from your imagination or fantasy. I’ve always found Stevie’s music to be romantic and mystical and she’s a force to be reckoned with. Her voice is unique and beautiful and I’ve always been a fan of Fleetwood Mac and her solo efforts.

When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty. – Stevie Nicks

There’s something to say about listening to what the world thinks about girls because there always seems to be double standards both ways not just with women but also with men. However if I must argue about equality for women we are expected to carry ourselves a certain way, talk properly, not swear, to be pretty and have yourself together. It’s when we show our strength that many get intimidated or think we’re a bitch. If we dress up or take pictures of ourselves we’re considered to be vain and to show emotions or to be loving we’re shown as being illogical and weak. This quote was definitely very on spot when it comes to being a woman.

I totally believe in magic. Because my life I think has been very magic, and magical things have to come true for me time after time after time. – Stevie Nicks

I believe in magic too but some call it that gut feeling or intuition but I think it’s more than that. Think of all of the things in life nature, flowers, the ocean, the stars, universe and how can you not think that just maybe it’s magical. Not saying it isn’t real just saying that it comes from a special place. As an artist and creative person I make magic and I believe magic resides in all of us .
