The host for the Writer’s Post Blog Hop this week is Daphne Steinberg at “A Full Degree below Normal”. This is my response to her writing prompt.
"It is said that “Life imitates art.” If you could step into a book or a piece of art, which one would it be and why?"
If I could step into any book it would be “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”, the very first book of the Harry Potter series. Why you ask? Because I have always been fascinated by magic. I loved the Harry Potter books and movies and would love to immerse myself in that world. Why the first book over the others? The first book marks Harry’s discovery of the wizarding world. I would choose to discover it right along with him and all the magical wonder it possesses.
Many will say I should one day visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park and I would agree whole heartedly with them. I could imagine me buying all my wizarding bits and bobs in Diagon Alley. I would have a hard time choosing between a cat or an owl as both would be cool pets. What could be more thrilling than riding the Hogwart’s Express and discovering all the sweets on the trolley? I would hope to be good friends with Harry, Ron, and Hermione sharing in their adventures and their frequent visits to see Hagrid. I can imagine the awe I would feel when I first see Hogwarts and the magic that lies within from the enchanted ceiling in the Great Hall to the staircases that change on a whim.
I would be thrilled to learn magic, visit Hogsmeade, make friends, and learn to balance my happy a$$ on a broom. I get excited just thinking of the possibilities!! As much as I love books, Hermione would find a kindred spirit in me. We could explore all those amazing magical books in the library together! Living in a monstrous castle, learning how to cast spells, watching a quidditch match, eating those magical feasts, and exploring the grounds: I would do it all in a heartbeat until next time when I give you another glimpse into the life of a trucker’s wife.
