THE MAGIC OF NATURE

When I think of MAGIC, several things come to mind. First is the sleight of hand antics performed by magicians on many stages everywhere.  Even better is the magic inherent in the Harry Potter World.  I just love such things as the pensieve, the time turner, the invisibility cloak, and the spell that makes any purse hold so very much.

But the best magic is the majesty of Nature that is everywhere. At least for those who take the time to stop and notice. 

As Marian Green explains, “The words ‘Natural Magic’ might appear to be a contradiction in terms, but Nature is Magic.”  I add this suggestion:  Spend time in Nature. Then, whether looking out to the horizon or down at the smallest detail, let the magic of Nature bring you peace, comfort and strength. That is when you will notice the magic all around you.
