Black Magic focuses on the idea of being in love with being a dreamer. I've had many moments with myself where I'm trying to figure out if I'm awake or dreaming. Could this really be happening? You know the feeling when you are dreaming, and you wake up longing to fall back asleep and pick up where you left off? That's how it feels to me to be a dreamer in a world that sometimes stifles creative minds.
Be a dreamer, even if it feels heavy sometimes because it's such a roller coaster. It can seem scary, lonely, dark, but I promise it's actually extremely rewarding, essential, and exhilarating. It's emotional; but emotions are real and yours are valid. We are programmed from a young age to reject dreams and to suppress how we truly feel. To think realistically. To have backup plans. But what is reality, what is a backup plan? What are we so afraid of? The man preaches that whatever you dream about, should just be a hobby. But, I want my full time job to be my dream. I'm very fortunate to have grown up surrounded by an extremely supportive family and group of close friends. I owe them a lot - they've given me the courage to carry on with my music.
I'm learning to fall in love with the unknown. Learning to be powerful in that ambiguity. If I am strong when I feel unsure, I will be unstoppable when I am secure. It's all a lesson and building my character. Allowing me to be a pioneer for the dreamers, allowing me to shed light on the fact that having a wild imagination and big ideas enhances your quality of life. That it is not a waste of time to think outside of the box. My life is an adventure and I don't want it any other way. So maybe it won't be simple, I won't have all the answers, there are no guarantees - but I will never be bored or unfulfilled.
Tell me my dreamer state is my true self and the day-to-day survival life is the dream, and when I wake up - I'll be an awakened Dreamer. I need it all. Give me the good, the bad, the Black Magic.
