For Those Who Don't Believe in Magic.



“If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and adore.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson


For those who don't believe in magic...just look around, and there it is.

It's in the flower bed, and poking up through the dirt...

And right above you, in the depth of blue in the sky above...

It surrounds you when the wind blows, gently through and tickling your hair...

And it's in the way the grass feels in between your toes and beneath your feet.

Magic surrounds us everyday and in every way...when it is, that we simply open our eyes to *see*.

It's not a trickery of lights or some other life altering legerdemain...

Rather, it's quite merely...and always only...a simple change of perspective.

This following video, "New Zealand Landscapes Timelapse Volume Two" from Bevan Percival, underscores so brilliantly the 'magic' of this most amazing world - and when we're able to simply slow down long enough to take it all in and enjoy.

Life, sometimes, can move so very quickly - that we breeze through without ever savoring each 'bite'...and in the end, we lose the truest 'flavor' of our memories.


If only we might remember to just slow down our pace, we might see the magic through the 'slight of hand'...

Namaste, my most beautiful friends... I am off to a most busy day, I shall be thinking of each of you and sending you love and hopes that you might savor the magic today.
