Just around
1: Look closely and you might see
I slow down agonizingly
But if you seem to forget about me
I fly around, like wind in the tree - (watch)

2: I am a thought that no one knows
Not even man can come near me
Watch me close and it will show
Nothing explains the likes of me - (dream)

3: I can do, so much more
Than it looks like I am made for
But nothing can I accomplish at all
Without my master, friends and all - (cards) ["friends and all" meaning fingers]

Many of us want it when we do our job. It’s our obligation to make them see the magic. We must have them do it. (Watch)

Epiphanies, Ideas, and Drawings find their way here. We must put them to use. (Notebook)

Reactions start the process. It is held inside by our stem. Locked inside, it goes in any direction. (Dream)

Good luck to everybody. Great riddles thus far!

The dirtier I am, the easier to see. On a clear day, don't run into me. <window>
Too fast too slow, and I'll lead you woe. At the perfect speed, me you should heed. <watch>
A moment in time - yours to keep
so you won't forget even after you sleep. <picture>

If you buy them, then you get four suits for $2. - Cards
This is awesome.

My submissions:
I OBSERVE your hands and face
I SEE what you are telling me
I LOOK because everything runs through you (watch)

Fifty two dancers, they dance in a line,
See how they cut and they spin and they twine.
A suitor sets in to dance with them all
And they know all the steps, hold spectators in thrall.
He holds them lightly at the end of the night
And puts them to bed, together and tight.
He was not the first, as many recall
To dance with these dancers, beloved by all. (cards)

What? Where? Why?
Whatever. Wherever. Why Not.
Whoa.
Wake.
(dream)
 
1. I read your thoughts and tell your stories. (Notebook)

2. You see the world through my eyes. (Glass)

3. The 1/1000th of a second that you try your entire life to bring back. (Picture)

You can leave an impression on me, but never really notice as you see right through me. (glass)

I am placed on the table, cut, but never eaten. (cards)

I went to the city. I stopped there, I never went there, and I came back. (a watch)

Kingdoms rest within my case
With different class and creed and caste
But somehow strangley built of all
Is that two clowns do watch them fall. (Cards)

Round and round and round I spin
Always moving foward
But if i'm read
You'll know instead
That I change my own accord (watch)

I have four corners, but fake am I
A memory from someones eye. (picture)

Within these hands they provide mystery. When properly shown they provide the answer. (Cards)

Things can't be set in stone if you don't know where to cast the first one. (Dream)

Each one holds something interesting, some light hearted, others dark, but all holds a story. (Notebook)

Although what you can clearly see is only inches from your grasp, a large barrier of me will shatter your dreams of touching it. (Glass)

I am invisible, possibly shared by thousands or unique to one, but unbeknownst to others (if you are secretive). Yet, I am the driving force for achieving your goals. (Dream)

Whether you are looking at 1 person or hundreds, my purpose keeps you from having a conversation with them. But look all want! You can touch, too! (Picture)

Time flies by,
When you stare at me,
For this answer,
Listen close to any David Blaine parody. (Watch, watch, watch...)

Why I exist,
No one knows.
As time goes by,
Your memory of me goes.
But we'll meet again soon,
Luckily,
Cause without me,
You'd go crazy.
(Dream)

I can be a film,
A dream,
An image,
A scene.

I can be for many,
Yet most important of all,
I allow the past,
To be hung on your wall.
What am I?

(Picture)

Looking good so far everyone.

Cheers,
Lucas

"The unspeaking voice belonging to the heart whispers wisdom most profound".
From medium of fortune telling would be most likely used to find this answer?

Though it seems that way, what I display is far from constant.

I enjoy making you feel bold, weak and fuzzy inside, that is if you can remember. (Dream)

I am easily captured in seconds, if you are fast enough to capture me. (Picture)

If not for the sands of time, with much pressure I am easily seen through. (Glass)

Good luck everyone!

1. Only after my experience do you realize that I wasn't real... (dream)

2. If I'm not with you, you ask for my brother, or look for my dad. If you listen carefully, my grandfather might just tell you what you need, for he can have quite a loud voice. (watch)

3. "Note: I barely took." Now destroy reality. (notebook)


Hope you understand them!

Rupayan

P.S. I have a feeling that you wont understand the third one. Here's the explanation...

If you take all the letters from "reality" out of "Note: I barely took," you end up with these letters:

NOTEiBarelytOOK or NOTEBOOK.

Hope you understand.

2. Words upon words, I'm like a book with no pages. (Picture) (a picture's worth a thousand words)

3. Shaped and formed, blown and cut, I can take many forms, but a still sea looks like me. (Glass)
