Do you believe?
I do. I believe in magic and miracles. And there's no better time to see magic and miracles than this time of year.
Am I right?
There is nothing quite like the glitter and sparkle that surrounds us. The air is full of hope and joy. Childrens faces literally glow. There's magic in that. It has to be magic. Children believe without question. It's the grown ups that can't grasp the fact that a jolly old dude with a white beard and a red suit can fit in the chimney. duh! The grown ups need to take a lesson. Look for the joy, expect the goodness and we won't be disappointed.
The grown ups get so busy. Too many things to do, not enough time, they miss the magic. The children don't get too busy, don't want to miss anything, can't wait till Christmas! Why is it taking so long?
We need to take it down a notch. Everything will get done. It's not a race. And if something doesn't get done, the world won't come to an end. I bet no one even notices.
my tween grand will shudder at the thought I used the word "totes". She will say "mimi, PLEASE don't use that word! NO ONE uses that word! You know it's so old-fashioned!"
and I will reply "totes!"
Where do you see magic?
Is it in the first snow? The soft white covered ground that twinkles and sparkles, and the absolute quiet that comes with it?
Is it in the bokeh? In the camera? Because I can't see it with just my eyes, but my camera sure can! There must be magic in my camera!
I know, I know, technological yadayadayada, (makes me sleepy), is what makes bokeh.
I still think it's magic.
