Magic is something that is around every day. It can take any form from Fairy to Aura to God. I feel it when I find a little mossy land between the cracks. Children often live seamlessly between both worlds. They talk to the elves and are deeply afraid of the dark. I feel it when I enter my studio or when an artwork magically comes together. Magic is in my house in Massachusetts and the land around it. However, magic cannot be made on purpose. Magic is something that happens that is more powerful than any person. Maybe it is embarrassing to believe in, but if you do, it is there.
