Left my Mark

I have been thinking a lot lately about when  I used to play in a metal band back in the day. I say back in the day like an old timer but I am only 30 so it was just a few years ago. Anyhow, it reminded me of an action that I took one day that I believe yielded a successful magical result. One night I was at a concert at a local venue called the Canal Club. Since I know people that know people I was backstage hanging out with some of the bands and whatnot. I kept a sharpie on me at all times back then and decided to leave a tag on the wall that said "Dead but Dreaming, (Band name that I was forming at the time. A little lame in retrospect) We'll be back." I also included a sigilized form of my name on the wall. Dead but dreaming never made to the Canal Club but about a year later I tried out for another band called Pyne, they kicked out their singer the next day and I was in. Pyne did play the club on quite a few occasions. The first time we did I went back stage and the tag was still there. I realized that it had come full circle and chalked it up as a magical success.

Never underestimate your ability to will something to happen or to draw situations with a little work and "simple" act of magic.

Oustanding -- and very interesting, since the word "sing" comes from Proto-Indo-European root "sengwh" meaning "to sing" or "make an incantation."

Entry on "sing" at the Online Etymology Dictionary
