When was the last time you experienced Magic?
I view Life as a challenge when over indulging repetitiveness. This creates a mundane experience. I am reminded of that old adage saying, "All good things in moderation." I especially apply this sentiment to monotony. Unnecessary monotony can lead to a humdrum life experience which eventually yields depression and an over all pessimistic attitude. Yuck. It is for this reason I suggest regular doses of MAGIC.
When was the last time you created Magic?
I was recently reminded of the positive influence Magic instills when deciding to dust off my bubble machine and enjoy the spring air. I sat outside my deck with a cup of coffee as the bubbles took flight. It wasn’t long before their iridescent hues memorized me and lightened my mood. Little minutes more, I was swept away with inspiration, and the Muse hasn’t left. I find myself renewed, motivated and focused, all of which are signs of being marked by Magic. The early morning light, the songs of mocking birds, the cool breeze, the iridescent hues of bubbles, the sunlight sparkling stars on their surface, the cup of warm lavazza – all Magical. A simple moment, a new twist to an early morning gifted me my joie de vivre. No, bubbles are not my Joie de vivre but simplistic beauty, inspiration and humor are. What’s sillier than lavazza and bubbles? Yet, this simplicity stirred within a peace that grows. It was during this moment that I wanted for nothing and wished I could bring that feeling to everyone. Nothing would make me happier, for then no one would suffer loneliness or worse still death by monotony of routine.
Magic is the only thing that can lead you to your Joie de vivre and this is the cure for all that ails the heart. Magic is felt verse seen. Magic is best when experienced. You know when you’ve been in the presence of Magic for it transcends you beyond the five senses and arouses within you imagination.
Imagination is the doorway to Magic and to those brave enough to cross its threshold lies an extraordinary Life tailored to you and your senses.
What are some of the ways you engage magic in your life? In your creations? Does your art provide you a doorway into a magical realm? If so, what do you experience there that you can not experience anywhere else in your life? OR does your art work provide magical portals to those who collect it? DO you need support in finding magic, well, this is one of the concepts I typically engage in a one-on-one.
