Her post got me thinking about a question that’s been floating around in my mind for a while:

What is magic?

Some things that seem like magic, can be explained by science. But they are still magical. Like magnetism, fire flies, thunder, lightening, rainbows, mushrooms making fairy circles….

The Pandoran wood sprites in the photo to the right, moved magically to anything that came close to the wall projection where they lived. Of course there is a scientific explanation for that, but it was still magical. It was especially magical being there with  the children who didn’t try to figure out the technology that made this happen. They just enjoyed being there.

Even when I understand the science, it’s still magic.

The true magic, I believe, is not the kind where a man with a black cape and wand pulls a rabbit out of a hat.

The magic I believe in is broad and spiritual. It has something to do with the “Law of Attraction.” But I believe it also has to do with the influence and assistance of angels, spirit guides, and ultimately, ever present, all knowing God, the Great Spirit.

I don’t like to put God in a box. God is beyond gender, beyond our understanding. Though if we pay attention, we may glimpse God through nature, other people and  miracles.

God makes the biggest, best magic.

Like making things work out in the long run. And bringing long lost loves back together again when the time is right….

…..And the marvelous tapestry of things contained on and in planet Earth.

We only need to open our eyes and minds and hearts.

Magic is all around us.

Magic lives in snowflakes and ice crystals, in daffodils and cocooned caterpillars, waiting for the warm sunlight to bring new life.

Magic lives in believing that spring is coming, even though we don’t feel it yet.

Magic lives in silly things like cats playing in paper bags and baby giggles.

Magic lives in the vibration of drum beats and heart beats, guitar strings and virgin wings taking flight.

This is my 111th post on this blog. Is that magic?
