Endless Possibilities - One World One Heart



Welcome Friends....both Dear and New :)

This post is in celebration of the final One World One Heart Event. If you are unfamiliar with this 2 week Blog Hop of meeting, greeting, giveaways and fun times....please click the above button to see a list of participants and enjoy all that they have prepared for this magnificent soiree'....

As for me, in thinking about this special post and what I would write....I thought it best to introduce to first-time visitors (and re-affirm to my treasured return guests) what resonates with me....

Would it be my love of creating and painting and expressing? Well, sure....that is at my core...

(from a mural I volunteered to paint at my Daughter's preschool)

Is it my love for my family.....those that are patient with my latest hobbies and infatuations? Those amazing individuals that help give my Life meaning and are the essence of all that is good in it?


They are with me in all that I do, yes....

Is it our First Home...which we just now acquired after 11 years of marriage? A place to raise our daughter, to call a safe haven and to inspire great projects in determination and togetherness? Maybe a little.....

I thought long and hard about how lucky I am to even have my list be this long!

But, what kept surfacing....what seemed to be my truth....
Is belief in the Magic all around us in this beautiful, wondrous world!

The Magic that makes it possible for me to have that list above!!

So, how does one go about documenting this....magic? ....and exactly what does it look like?

That's what is so incredible about this concept....and why it is so important to me. I'm sure it is defined differently by as many people that are asked.


Now, where some may find my account contrived and simplistic.....I hope the majority of you will agree that Magic comes when you are open to it.....sometimes, you create it for yourself, and sometimes, it's about seeing it, plain as day right in front of your eyes!

Here's a bit from today :)



I love that an ordinary breakfast can be something fun instead.....

That any open space, no matter where it is, just seems to be made for spontaneous dancing!

(I was dancing, too...behind the camera....heehee)

I love that someone thought a plain wall just wasn't good enough....and made it enchanting!


I'm tickled to live in a world where a neglected sea of dandelions....


....is a dense jungle for an imaginative big cat using "tamo fwahj" She still has trouble with c's and l's :)



....and provides enough blooms for a lovely Fairy Crown.



Where else can a bath towel cape, paper towel roll telescope and plastic bird be all you need for adventure on the high seas?


Or a colander be the perfect pith helmet?



This magic helps Llamas find you!


....and changes old moving boxes into kennels for recuperating pets.



I love that in this world.....words can easily become Love Letters XO



That all it takes to make something extraordinary, is to use real plates and crazy straws :)



I am so thankful to be able to be a part of this Magic...to let the mundane responsibilities of everyday living and the carefree days of childhood cohabit, hobnob and pal around :)

When you live in this kind of world....the possibilities truly are endless!



I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by today! I count Blogging as one of my absolute favorites...and, well...the people I've met here are the reason why!


Isn't it nice to live in a world where strangers can find kindred spirits and pour out their desires and thoughts...and become strangers no longer....but friends! That is powerful Magic, indeed :)

And, in the nature of things playful and introspective...I want to gift 2 visitors with a hand-embellished journal....from me to you!


This one says, "She was so ridiculous." in the text.


I hope you share and recognize the Magic that is yours...and I look forward to reading all about what your own truths are.....

Thank you to Lisa, a true Whimsical Bohemian, for hosting this grand event! I"m so honored to be a part of it!

Hugs, smiles, and a sprinkling of fairy dust,
Cameron
