  4. Don’t we all have the power to create our own magic? It’s not a wish, but a decision to have that state of mind….just sayin’.

    As Zig would suggest (and I often quote) …you might not be able to change your facts, but you can always change your attitude.

    Have an outstanding day!

  6. This is the scary part….I’ve had more than enough of realism. The buckets are full-to-overflowing…think Mr. Disney’s FANTASIA and Mickey’s idea of “greatness” backfiring.
    Magic is looking pretty good, and only because it is beginning to feel like that is quickly becoming the only option available.
