When I was in high school I started reading novels by Francesca Lia Block , and this was the first time I was introduced to the idea of magic in the every day. (This excludes magic by way of Wiccan and other Pagan practices). I consumed all of her novels in a short period of time and find myself wanting more. I started reading so much more because of Weetzie Bat and Echo. I met people who loved her words, and to this day I still have friends with strong ties to Francesca Lia Block.
In and out of my life I’ve stopped looking and stopped believing. Some times the daily grind just stomps out all inclination that magic exists. Sometimes we do that to ourselves.
For 2017 the word I picked to represent my year is MAGIC. So I’d like to start a series of posts about magic, specifically recognizing magic in the every day. I welcome you to join me in the comments or in our own blog.
Do you believe in magic?
Here are a few things I know to be magic:
– Finding kindred spirits and connecting and reconnecting with those friends over the years
– music that can transport you back in time
– winning free leggings (one per month) for a year
– drinking kefir and kombucha – probiotics are magic
