Mage Music: The Blog - Writings on Magic and Creativity

Magick is the science and art of bringing about actual changes in reality in accordance with the practitioner’s desire and will.

Mage Music: The Blog is a compilation of selected posts from jimmypagemusic.blogspot.com from May 7, 2012 through November 22, 2014 from author Life Strand. The blog was begun with the intention of discussing and analyzing the music of the extraordinary guitarist, Jimmy Page. It evolved into a broader look at the creative nature of Magick and the connection of Magick with music and other forms of art. This book is the text of blog.

Wow. Reading this book has been quite a journey. Taking what I know about Jimmy Page and Robert Plant and life in general, which seems to be an average amount for someone in my age bracket, and opening the door to something I can’t say that I had avoided in the past, but just never knew the correct path to take to begin the quest.

I will say that during the course of turning the pages that the dim bulb in my head certainly became quite bright. I cannot now claim to be an expert on the subject, I do not host vast volumes of knowledge, however, there is a certain level of enlightenment that I now possess. Using more familiar subjects and concepts allowed the unknown to become unknown.

This is just an amazing and thought-provoking piece of literature. Whether you’re a novice, an expert or anywhere in between, you will learn something. I did.
