Mind Over Matter

Hi, this is Josefina. As you (hopefully) recall from my previous post, Fiona said she was going to teach me how to float a pencil like she can. We didn't have anything planned for the evening, so we sat across the kitchen table and I tried to learn.

Fiona set the pencil down between us. She looked at it for a minute, and then it rose a couple of inches off the table. I looked around to see if there were hidden wires or clear cords or something holding it up, but I didn't see anything. She lifted it higher and lower, and then made it spin. Then she set it down, and told me to concentrate.

I tried. Nothing happened.

Fiona said I should focus more.

I tried some more. I started to think it wasn't going to work. I never did manage to lift it in the air... but there was a little burst of flame, and the pencil looked scorched! It was the weirdest thing!

Fiona said that had never happened to her before. She can make things move - like the pencil, or the spoons she talked in her interview about balancing on her hand. Nothing ever caught on fire, though.

I am sooooo freaked out! What's going on?!



  1. Good to see you, Lena! :-)

    Yeah, it was weird for sure!
