The "Magic"

“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

Lifetime, institutional bureaucrats
don't believe in 'magic.'

The realm of the unknown and unquantifiable,
is unsafe to their
procedure and result oriented mind.

How sad,
that they will go through their lives,
having missed the beauty and depth
of humanity;
and never experience the 'magic.'

Theirs is a constricted world;
based in a false sense
of safety and security.

In the end,
Numbers and formulaic strategies
are just that...
logical entities.

In the end,
it is our humanity,
in all of it's intricacy and complexity,
that remains and whispers to us,

"Have you seen the magic? Do you see it now? Can you feel it?
What does it reveal to you? What lessons have you learned from it?
Who are you, because of the magic?"

Why wait till the end?
