The Big Reveal

As science comes ever closer to unravelling the mysteries of the Universe (although I believe we have so far seen about 1 cm out of 100 miles of mystery) there are some things in life that should remain secret.  Things such as – what is the purpose of the earlobe; how did that tiny hole get in the middle of my t-shirt; why is there nothing 100% spherical in the natural world; where is the other sock; who is the Stig; how did David Blaine push a cigarette through a penny?

One by one these little mysteries are explained away.  The sock is found; the Stig is unmasked (unhelmeted sounds too painful); magic is revealed to be a trick.  While we knew all along it was a trick, that there was an explanation, the wonder was in allowing ourselves to revert to a childlike state and be amazed.  

That’s why theme parks are such a draw and why I will never, ever, try to find the alien that has my other sock.  After all, Santa will bring a new pair soon.


About Bea Turvey apprentice author and witch

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write, I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2017 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you liked it - or even why not!
