I have been asked many times ‘What is Magic?’ It’s a tough question to answer.
This weekend though, I think I experienced all aspects of magic.
There was the magic of a friendship of many years finally given quality time, there was the magic of a new and almost instantaneous new friendship, there was the magic of late night joyful discussions over alcohol and cigarettes, there was the magic of tears – mostly through sheer joy (but maybe also through an England berth in a world cup semi-final), there was the magic of the Earth and small rituals, there was the magic of renewal and cleansing, there was the magic of a heartfelt prayer answered immediately in a surprising way, there was intuition, strange coincidence, and much more….there was even the magic of finding a place to eat, only to find I was on the menu! (Yes – I really was)…
I came back a different person to the one that left just three days earlier – Now, that is magic!
