“We men dream dreams, we work magic, we do good, we do evil.
Dragons do not dream. They are a dream.
They don’t work with magic because it lives within the substance of their being.
They do not do; they are.”
~ Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore ~
To the human mind, words are full of life’s infinite experiences, whether in the past, present, or future. The written and spoken word resides within the mind as an unremembered past as it waits for the yet-to-be future thought to be spoken or written. You are reading words right now on this page, on this website, at this very moment. Each word in this paragraph will feel cherished when read. Every word loves to wiggle its way into an unimaginably distant future. Sounds cling to each form and potentiality of what we choose to say or think verbally. How wonderful living life can be knowing every breath we take can be both magical and manic at the same time.
It is time for me to take a walk in the woods. That’s where I can listen to the magical whispering of the trees. Remember, dear readers, both life and living are essential parts of learning. Feel free to contact me with questions – conversations create excellent connections that expand both the mind and the heart.
I’d love to hear from you.
