“I want to be magic. I want to touch the heart of the world and make it smile. I want to be a friend of elves and live in a tree. Or under a hill. I want to marry a moon beam and hear the stars sing. I don’t want to pretend at magic anymore. I want to be magic.”
~Charles de Lint
There is magic everywhere if one just looks for it; with eyes of wonder, like a child The blue sky full of wispy white clouds passing above our heads, changing into any shape you can imagine. When was the last time you gazed up at the beautiful cloud filled sky and watched a wonderous story unfold before you? This is magic and the world is full of it. Children know this pleasure…lie in the cool green grass, stare up into that endless expanse and linger awhile, what do you see?
“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.”
~J. B. Priestley

Hey Paula, the sky is an endless source of inspiration…thanks for stopping by and have a good weekend as well. 🙂
What a beautiful post! I will do that tomorrow – lie on the grass and look up at the sky… and I’ll think of you doing the same thousands of miles away! 😉 Today I looked up at two buzzards flying really high above the trees – wish I could fly! 😀
Hey Cathy, you have a wonderful soul…I too shall do the same and think of you too! 🙂
