Hey - I know where Magic lives.

Hello lovelies,

Where is the

~*:*~ m a g i c ~*:*~

in your life?


This week, here's where I found magic:

* in the miracle-fast bloom of a hyacinth bulb.

* in a conversation with my niece about jigsaw puzzles

and with my daughter about Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

* in my brain's ability to remember all the lyrics

of a song I haven't heard in 20 years.

* in the combination of a roasted sweet potato,

a drizzle each of olive oil and honey

and a pinch of crushed red pepper.

* in the return of morning birdsong.

* in a jaw-dropping tarot reading by Theresa Reed

in my sistermind group.

* in an out-of-the-blue offer -

something I never could've expected -

that smoothed out a persistent trouble.

* in a gorgeous interview of Teju Cole

about the importance of art in this time of outrage.

* in the creations of the women 

who came to SoulCollage® this week.

* in sparkly eyeshadow.

* in how the bass line feels in my chest

when the music is loud.

Here's how you can find magic:

Stop worrying about what might happen.

and pause your planning for what's next.

Stop obsessing over what DID happen

and let go of whatever blame and shame

imprisons you in the past.

For a moment,

cease and desist

this hurtling yourself through your life.

Get present.

Be here right now.

Literally stop and smell the roses.

Taste the asparagus.

Listen to the beat.

Feel the sun on your skin. 

Apply lipstick and admire yourself.

Dance to your favorite song.

Look at the moon.

Magic is everywhere.

E V E R Y W H E R E. 

And your wand is right there

in your miraculous hand.
