The Birthplace of Harry Potter

This afternoon, I arrived in the birthplace of Harry Potter: Edinburgh, Scotland. I am even writing this blog post from the very place J.K. Rowling wrote her incredible string of novels, The Elephant House. This journey marks the beginning of a quarter year of travels around Europe by myself, and I am beginning it with great gusto and positivity. As a writer and student, I find it extraordinarily inspiring to be seated in the very space a great, such as Rowling herself, gave birth to the magical world of Harry Potter. She is human, like me. And, she was probably drinking her tea/coffee and working away, just as I am write now. This relation is one I failed to realize until recently. I had never been, until now, so close to the people who have created the imagery, media, and content I have drawn inspiration from throughout my entire life. I am in the space of Rowling in Edinburgh, I was on the red carpet with Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel in London, I stood above Charles Darwin at Westminster Abbey, where he is buried, in London, and I have learned and worked beside friends who have already accomplished great things in the media industry and beyond. The world holds its doors open to me, and I believe, now more than ever, than anything is possible if I am willing to set my mind to the challenge.
