Making Magic

If you watch with "glittering eyes" you can find the magic. The kids had a two hour delay this morning and while they were still sleeping, I was looking for magic. 

This is what I found…a part two from yesterday's post.

“A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called "leaves") imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time ― proof that humans can work magic.” ~ Carl Sagan

And who doesn't love good old fashion fairy tale magic? Just bought tickets to see Cinderella in New York over the holiday break. I love Broadway shows, the magic of set design is real and in front of you…no special effects with a computer like in a movie. It's like making magic.
