magical and mysterious

Strange to think how one event or person or word can infuse a life with a sudden, nudging magic whereas another passes by without notice. In one case there is mystery and layered meaning and in another there is nothing to write home about.

A small nudge in my life was a poem by "anonymous" submitted many years ago in the military newspaper Stars and Stripes:
The baby is
As soft and sweet
As if she were
How many magical nudges and mysteries have I missed while seeking -- sometimes desperately -- for magic and mystery?

  1. We have two new puppies here. Their presence changes interest and energy in those around them. Being alive is so different from looking at life.
