So why is this site called The Eldest Wand? Well, it's an obvious play on words with The Elder Wand of course but my point is it doesn't matter how young or old you are, we can all enjoy something as great as the Harry Potter series.
I was in fact slow to come to the books. In my day job of primary (elementary) teacher I resisted the urge and the urgings of my students to read the Potter series in class.
But once I relented I knew almost immediately it was futile to resist any longer.
Like many people all over the world, children of ALL ages if you will, children from 9 to 90, I could resist no longer.
It was like the irresistible power of Lord Voldemort was smothering my senses...
"You have no idea what he was like even then" (Horace Slughorn to Harry).
But seriously, it was something beyond the drama, something beyond the entertainment, something even beyond the great writing with its unending creativity, surprise, narrative mis-direction and humor.
Here was, I sensed, a great moral tale of our time. A way to guide generations towards the "light" and the "road less traveled", as it were.
I hope that doesn't sound too highbrow but I am in, I think, a unique position where I can see the influence on the young generation, their thoughts and dreams and hopes and fears.
Being in daily contact with children and seeing how they were/are affected by the whole Potter phenomenon, it really does have an incredible affect on their lives on many levels, overt and subtle.
It has "seeped" into the consciousness of millions and in doing so, as far as I can tell, given people hope, faith and confidence in their daily lives.
This has had a profound effect on me too. So much so, I can't let it go and neither should you! I invite you, dear reader, to join with me and keep the world of Harry Potter alive for generations to come.
I hope I can bring some perspective and highlight the life lessons contained in Harry Potter.
But, of course, no one person has an "all-knowing" perspective. That's where you, dear reader, come into the picture.
I want this site to be a collaborative effort of like-minded people in the discussion, study, celebration and fun in all things Potter.
I'll make available, where possible, the ability for you to contribute your opinion and insights on many pages.
But don't forget, it's a CELEBRATION - NOT a site for juvenile irrelevant comment or humor.
Yes, by all means show your sense of humor but do so in a way that both entertains, edifies and uplifts our community and we'll all be the better for the experience.
So you can see what I think of J. K. Rowling. In my privileged position of classroom teacher I've seen how her work has both entranced and delighted children over the years.
It is entertaining, insightful and thoroughly absorbing and stimulating.
In my humble opinion, her writing is up there with C.S. Lewis and Roald Dahl in its ability to capture a child's imagination and leave them, vicariously, a much more rounded person.
Harry Potter has all the elements of good narrative writing; orientation; complication and varied sequenced themes running throughout; plot; great character development; loss and redemption; resolution and much, much more!
I mean, just think of Harry Potter, Hermione and Ron Weasley. They're such well developed characters who grow over the entire series. We'll get to all the other characters (and your responses!) on other pages.
We must also look at the actors too.
Just what was the chance of finding and hiring people like Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint in the one series, not to mention all those other great British actors.
Actors like Dame Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon (and before him Richard Harris), Alan Rickman, Jim Broadbent, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Jason Isaacs et al (I can't go on with the list or well be here all day!)
Really, it's impossible for anyone reading Harry Potter, whether a child of nine or ninety, and not come away from it with an increased awareness and perspective on life itself.
J. K. Rowling has really given us so much and I think it our "duty" almost to continue the memory!
