Can't Put the Pen Down…

Does anyone care about the magic anymore?


rainbowThat was the question a friend of mine asked on Facebook the other day and it got me thinking “what about the magic?” I believe that magic surrounds us and permeates much of what we do, see, feel, and think. Magic goes by many names: talent, science, faith, love, beauty, innocence, patience, compassion, and more.  Forgetting about the magic doesn’t make it disappear any more than forgetting that we breathe oxygen makes the oxygen disappear from our environment. Deliberately ignoring the magic is a pointless gesture, ignore the rainbow and you’re the only one who misses out.  I believe that having an explanation for something doesn’t make it less magical. The magic is found in how it affects us and how that, in turn, affects others.
I’ve seen people who have forgotten the magic. They are cynical, tired, depressed, and mean-spirited; sometimes they are me! Magic makes me smile, it makes me believe there is a reason to get out of bed in the morning, I am never as inspired to write, draw, or sing as I am when I have been touched by the magic.

Does anyone care about the magic anymore? Maybe it’s not a matter of caring, maybe it’s just a matter of acceptance.

I search for the magic and it hides. I forget about the magic and it waits. I breathe deeply, relax, and open my heart and the magic is sitting beside me, holding my hand.

May you have a magical life.

  1. Thanks I will. Magically yours. Saskia

  2. Enjoyed your writings. I think that it is amazing that many people believe that they have somehow outgrown the magic and that if I talk about such things as if they are as real as the bread on my table that I am somehow naive or less intelligent. As you say, magic is there whether we choose to acknowledge it or not. In some way it is wild and free and refuses to be overanalyzed, but that does not make it any less real. There are a number of things that make our lives richer and if we ignore them it is a sad situation indeed. Perhaps it is not that there are fewer people who care about the magic and rather fewer that will take the risk and accept and embrace it.
