Across the Threshold to 2017


The sun has risen on the first day of the first month of a new year.  A new day has dawned, heralding new beginnings, a fresh start, a clean slate, and no regrets.

Life is what we make it.  We are the architect of our own destiny, the captain of our own ship.  We create our own future.  So let’s make it an amazing one.

Miracles and magical experiences await us on the horizon.  We may not see them yet, but they’re there.  Just BELIEVE!!

Happy New Year, Everyone!!

Magical Moss Valley



“I want to be magic.

I want to touch the heart of the world and make it smile.

I want to be a friend of elves and live in a tree.  Or under a hill.

I want to marry a moonbeam and hear the stars sing.

I don’t want to pretend at magic anymore.

I want to be magic.”

Charles de Lint

A Magic Stopping Of The Sun



“All I know is that prayer constructs a velvet bridge, 

and walking it we are aloft, as on a springboard.

Above landscapes the colour of ripe gold.  

Transformed by a magic stopping of the sun.”

Czeslaw Milosz, Polish Author
