Remembering Magic

On my morning walk, in the midst of the dark, brisk chill, I saw a falling star. The surprise and the beauty of the moment took my breath away. I immediately whispered, “that was magical”. The cascade of thoughts that followed led to this post.

 Magic is that which is beyond understanding.

Try that definition on in your mental wardrobe for a moment. Then let’s talk…

Question

It is difficult being a stay-at-home mom. I’m talking about the times when the kids aren’t around. When the house is quiet and I am left to ask, “what now”?

Fall Through My Eyes

This time of year, Southern Indiana becomes a fascinating tapestry of warm, rich colors that hang above and drizzle upon locals and countless visitors alike.

Each year though, I get a bit more tired of taking the same pretty-vista photos. As stunning as the views are to experience (wind rushing around my face, birds magically hovering above expansive, rolling hills of puffs of color), the photos come nowhere near to capturing the experience.

I wind up with dozens more images that are beautiful, but that feel trite and dry and remind me very little of how that year’s excursion varied from the previous year’s. This year, I thought I’d change things up a bit….
