I came across this quote/story by author Karen Rivers awhile back and thought it was just a wonderful reminder to keep our "glittering eyes" open . . .
"ON MY DINING ROOM WALL, I PAINTED THIS QUOTE FROM ROALD DAHL'S BOOK THE MINPINS:
'Above all, watch with glittering eyes
the whole world around you because
the greatest secrets are always hidden
in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic
will never find it.'
I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO NEVER FORGET TO USE THEIR OWN GLITTERING EYES. IDEAS ARE EVERYWHERE. THEY ARE SOMETIMES FLEETING, BUT SOMETIMES THEY STAY TANGLED WITH YOUR OWN IMAGINATION, AND THEY COME TOGETHER AND FORM STORIES.
THAT IS WHERE THE MAGIC LIVES: IN THE WEAVING TOGETHER OF SOMETHING YOU REMEMBER AND SOMETHING YOU HEARD AND SOMETHING YOU DREAMED AND SOMETHING YOU ONCE SAW ON FACEBOOK AND A CHARACTER YOU CAN SUDDENLY SEE WITH PERFECT CLARITY, WHO IS WAITING TO TELL YOU HER OWN TALE."
I believe in magic.
