Thursday Thoughts: Universal Magic

universeI believe in magic. I always have, from the time I ran outside to prevent my dad from mowing down a faerie ring of mushrooms to the star I wished on a few weeks ago–when we didn’t have constant cloud cover. There is magic in every-day life. I remember settling on hot cement with Only to watch a cicada emerge from its chrysalis, fairy wings drying under the setting sun of a summer day. I remember chasing rainbows across two counties with grandmother, searching for the pot of gold at it’s base. She was a Ryan by birth, her father a first generation emigrant from Ireland. I remember the first laughs of the two babies in my life–Only and Stormageddon. I remember sunrises and sunsets, full moons, and horned moons. I remember unicorns and wolves, and Santa Claus.

But some days, it’s hard to find the magic so this little reminder from the Universe comes at a good time.

The very same magic, the very same, Silver, that you used to get your first job, to find a best friend, and to heal what hurt, that even now finishes your sentences, beats your heart, and inspires your dreams, is the exact same “grade” of stuff that can make what you most want today come to pass.

Point being: You’ve already engaged it. You’ve already commanded it. You’ve already done the impossible… So what’s the big deal about doing it again?

Oh go on…

Silver, you and the magic are one.

A small side note. Yesterday, I posted my 500th post. There were more posts on the old Penumbra site, but since stretching my wings and leaving the safety of a sheltered on-line existence behind, I’ve managed this site and my domain all on my own. Thank you, all of you, old friends and new, for bumping along this journey with me. If making friends like you isn’t magic, I’m not sure what is!

Here’s wishing you a day filled with magic and a life of dreams come true. No big deal, right?

    Congrats on hitting 500!!! Looks like I might hit 1000 later this year if I keep posting the way I’ve been recently. Between blog tours, spotlights on books and reviews, I’ve posted more this year than ever before.

    I still believe in magic too. 🙂
