Magic is within you!

‘I am so bored.’ My patient father, smiled at me, ‘want to see my treasure?’ All of six years, hooked to the promise in the twinkle of his eyes, I nodded, my bouncy curls agreed.

Neatly piled souvenirs in all shapes welcomed me in the barn. I stood there frozen, mouth wide open. I picked up the first one I fancied – a dove. I chuckled holding it. ‘That’s a magic dove,’ his eyes backing every word.

‘Everything has magic. And to know magic you have to be the source,’ he always said. I have never been in doubt since.

  1. Wow, I do love magic! But to that magic was only to be recognised if you yourself were the source? That’s definitely not a way in which I would’ve thought about 🙂

    Thank you again Alka!

      Thanks again ! I wanted to write more but the word count strapped me. This is a belief my dad instilled in me. And I live it each day!

      1. I think that it’s a great belief to live by, your Dad is definitely a wise man. Maybe I might start living by this saying as well? 🙂

        Oh that word count, funnily enough I managed to write a blog post shorter than this comment today… 3 lined stories? Yup, definitely harder than what I thought. Haha 😂😂😂
