it gathers you up

Posted by Daniela Elza on Jan 13 2012

‎”This experience—this awareness of my elemental, thingly presence to the tangible things that surround me—has remained, for me, the purest hallmark of magic, the very signature of its uttermost reality. Magic doesn’t sweep you away; it gathers you up into the body of the present moment so thoroughly that all your /explanations/ fall away: the ordinary in all its plane and simple outrageousness, begins to shine—to become luminously, impossibly so. Every facet of the world is awake, and you within it.”
