Introducing the idea of magic is something that TV has taken care off to some extent. For example, you only need to a quick search for “CBeebies and Magic” to see how many shows feature magic. For example, Tree Fu Tom encourages children to join in a somatic (movement) based ritual in the form of dance to build of 'energy' for powering a spell.
Had I known about Tree Fu Tom a decade ago or even earlier, I probably would have chosen to become a druid. Instead I ended up going down the default path of following my ancestral calling and become a first generation (trainee) golem builder.
There was a time when I was seeking a universal theory of magic. In particular when I first started attending talks at Treadwells bookshop and knew next to nothing about a path of magic. Since then I have matured a bit and abandoned the idea of finding a unified theory.

Anyway, looking back at ‘what might have been’… which my rabbi considers as little-known as the future… I wonder what it might have been like to be a druid? What other path might you have taken if you knew then what you know now?
