Everyday Enchantment

An enchanted world is one that speaks to the soul,
to the mysterious depths of the heart and imagination
where we find value, love and union with the world
around us.  As mystics of many religions have taught,
that sense of rapturous union can give a sensation of
fulfillment that makes life purposeful and vibrant.

~Thomas Moore~

Our world is filled with magic but many times we’re too busy to stop and savour it.  Late yesterday afternoon, after a day of “everything” weather, we were graced with a rainbow – another gift from Mother Nature.  While in La Jolla a few weeks ago I had to take a photo of this street lamp that seemed to be a favorite resting spot for pelicans, sea gulls and pigeons – a perch to sit and watch the world go by.  Often it’s the little things in our day that have the ability to enchant us, fill us up, and make us smile – all we have to do is slow down and look around.

Life is short so we must move very slowly.

~Thai Proverb~

Take some time today to be enchanted.

  1. I felt like a Marcel Duchamp painting today. I was moving so fast I was a blur! thanks for the reminder. I will try, I will try ….days off just seem to ask so much of me, or better said, i ask so much of them. I did take a 15b minute power nap…that’s a start!
    love you AC
