I found a great thread from another site. It offers an artistic approach at creating 'enchantments'. Whether by words and phrases, images, and sound. An inspirational approach that may help others transform their own personal relationships into something more positive.
An Art form of great Quality

That is the question.... :chicken4:
I'll offer a bit here on Chickensomething of what I added on this interesting thread. It dovetails into something I've been thinking about for some time...
Regarding the enchantments created by the medium in which I call like to call 'The Flickers'. An old term. A 'magic' word used by people long since dead when Magic lanterns became something more....
I'll try to get to more on magic words at the end of this post.
The problems and dangers of time travel. Sometimes, it's real hard getting back to the future. Ah well, I guess that's just the pro's and con's of hitch hiking. The guide on the galaxy is pretty good for that. All this led to a bit of visual psychology. You know, the hypnotism of the flickers. Symbolism of imagery combined with sounds and music. Looking at iconography and how it can be used for enchantments. Showing major contentions in the psychological injections of ideas and fantasies into our minds and ultimately our human spirit. These injections include both positive and negative stimulus.
Which ingredients for enchantments are the best kind? We could use humor as an example. Divide it in two. One side comedy, the other satire. Comedy is positive. Satire is negative.
Visuals in black and white. Silent film era...Positive and negative flickers of thought! Yeah, I know these are old flickers of enchantment, but, I think they're pretty good. Those old enchanters really knew what they were doin.
Harold Lloyd - Satire
His films seem to mock the human condition and enjoy doing it. Extreme situations of danger and personal catastrophe . Master at editing and clever camera work. Willing to do own stunts at great hazard.
Charlie Chaplin - Comedy
Comedy with etiquette and finesse. Positive in a world of suffering. The tramp should never talk. He says enough by his genius at silent lucid gesture.
Can this be a magical word of enchantment?
In those days your subtitle count was the measure of your art...
Now, I gotta ask, is this really good etiquette at the table?
