Paul and I walked in the park this morning, where we had a magical experience... We wandered along our usual route, and there, at the foot of a tree, was a magic wand! It was a branch that was almost completely straight and just lying at the foot of the tree as if someone had placed it there to be found. I pointed out that I already had a magic wand, but Paul needed one. So he wisely decided to take it with him. While we strolled along, we discussed Harry Potter and general lengths of wands, and whether he should trim it {yes} and stain and polyurethane it {yes and yes again}. Not from Ollivanders, but the next best thing. Just a few steps further and we met up with a pair of wild rabbits. They bounded off to investigate a pair of dogs, whose owner was the lady I met on chalking adventure #1 {who wanted to go to grad school}! How serendipitous can you get? She said hi and that the bunnies were very friendly and not afraid of dogs – and truthfully, they did seem more afraid of the two of us than of the 4-foots. On the way home I sang this song: The moon belongs to everyone, The best things in life are free. The stars belong to everyone, They gleam there for you and me. The flowers in spring, the robins that sing, The moonbeams that shine, they're yours, they're mine. And love can come to everyone, The best things in life are free. ~ from the musical "Good News" {1927}
