open invitation no. 30: magic unmasked

Masks hide magic.

The idea of a mask in any scenario has always fascinated me. Not only does it protect identity, it also allows one to hide. —Jason Reynolds

Today’s invitation to magic is to consider a mask you have encountered. It can be one you’ve worn; it can be figurative; it can be from a long time ago. Allow yourself to be fascinated.

Or, don’t write about a mask at all. Other topics can be magical, too.


Open your blog and write a post. Just write.
