A little bit of magic

“If you don't think there is magic in writing, you probably won't write anything magical.”
- Terry Brooks

I read this quote today and it got me thinking about magic. Not the traditional sort, pulling rabbits out of hats or the cool stuff we write about in our fantasy stories, but the natural sort of magic that is all around us.
So here are a few things that I think are magic:

Rainbows - I mean how beautiful are they? We wish upon them, look for pots of gold at the end of them and of course my unicorns travel on them!

Spiders Webs - Took these pics this morning outside our house. It was damp and foggy and I could see hundreds of webs all over the place, yet not one spider!  How busy must they have been? 







Sunsets and sunrises - I love pictures of sunsets, the variety of colours and patterns fascinate me. Nature's kaleidoscope!


Where do you find magic?

  1. What a great post! I love the look of spider's webs when they're wet with rain. They look so pretty!

  2. Gorgeous photos! And yes, I definitely find magic in landscapes, skies full of amazing clouds, etc. We had some rainbows this morning too :)

    I find a lot of inspiration in music, too...but also in just the everyday lives of people I know. Even people I don't know, who I see on the street ;)

  3. Thanks Trisha. I can see you are a singer and songwriter so I can totally see how music is so important to you. People yes - there are some magic people out there too!

  6. I find magic in children, playing, nature, and science! Magic is everywhere, I think, we just have to be trained to look for it!

    1. Good point, Lara, it is indeed there if we stop and take notice of it in our often too busy lifes.

  7. I also find magic in nature. Like the bright silver that clouds have when the sun breaks through after rain.

    Thanks for following my blog! :-)
