Elves: Elves are close to faeries. Some may consider them to be the same creatures. I am a firm believer the old Shakespearean quote "There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." I am a firm believer that more things exist than can easily be explained by science or Faith. And for that we need imagination.
Space: We (as humans) need to do more exploration there. We need to expand into space or we will encounter extermination on Earth. There is room for us to expand and be humble again. We as a species need this.
Magic: It happens. I have to believe that or else this world is much more bland and sad and painful than it really is. I think some call it Science, some call it Faith - but ultimately, those are just words for finding harmony with life forces and being in tune with the world as it truly is, not how we wish it to be or how others want us to see it.
College: growth and pain.
J-Lo (sorry; I see your name and I think J-Elf and then I think J-Lo and... yeah, my bad.): Silly word abbreviations are silly. She has some talent, but ultimately, she is growing up as we all must. Either by being betrayed, by having children, or by living life.
