Do you believe in magic?
Yes, ofcourse, it’s happening inside your head, but why on Earth would that mean that it isn’t real?
(Also, yes, after one whole long boring year off the blog this is my comeback post. It is cliche, but it deserves to be said.)
No, my logically inclined, disbelieving friends, I don’t mean waving wands and casting spells and brewing potions (though nobody would wish it were true more than I did);
I’m talking about the magic we feel and experience in everyday life.
In a world filled with increasing rates of war, crimes, hatred and discrimination, isn’t it magical that all of us go about our everyday lives, and not just that, do whatever we can to spread the love, knowing full well that whenever the next World War comes, the Earth as we know it will not exist?
All of us have (more than) our fair share of problems, but aren’t your family and friends there to hold you up, being the superglue that they are?
I mean, okay, maybe all this is large scale, let me tone it down a bit.
The smell of a book? Of paint? Of petrol? Of tea? Of hot steaming spicy biryani?
The pitter patter sound of your dog’s footsteps? The sound of applause? Of a beautifully done ARR song?
The carnival of a city that Madurai is, with it’s flashing lights and blaring horns and empty river and amazing people?
Isn’t it all magical?
Aren’t there things that you simply can’t explain, but they make you fill up with this warm glow inside (like when you have Butterbeer?), and you’re all happy?
So let’s celebrate the little sparks in life. Look at the magic in everyday things, and take life as it comes.
Because what’s coming will come, and we’ll meet it when it does.
Have a good day, everyone. 🙂
