“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.  Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

~ Roald Dahl


A stain on a baking sheet… It looks like a fairy to me.
Can you see her?

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

~ W.B. Yeats


You can even find something magic in a random wet spot on a counter if you look for it.

These are two of my favorite quotes.  They remind me whenever I think of them that there is magic everywhere.  All I have to do is open my eyes and look around me.

The Yeats quote I keep posted inside the door of my locker at my day job, and the Dahl quote is on my cover photo on my Facebook page.  I keep them where I will see them everyday so I never forget.

Where do you find magic in the everyday?

  1. One of my favorite quotes is from Kiki’s Delivery Service: “If I lose my magic, that means I’ve lost absolutely everything.” I think we need a little magic every day to keep our creativity alive.
