Magic of Summer

“And 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.”

Roald Dahl, author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach

Kid’s return to school tomorrow so I’m trying to remind myself the magic of summer is not over yet. There was enchantment in the sky as a hot summer day clouded over and we were deluged with dime-sized hail, as our kids decided they would truly swim rather than splash around, in our lazy family lunches on the deck, and in the brilliant hummingbirds swooping by our heads on their way to sip from the feeders.

I’ll continue to watch our corner of the world with glittering eyes – after all fall has magic in it too.
