The Thursday Think Tank - #22 Magic

The real magic wand is the child’s own mind
~Jose Ortega y Gasset

To a child magic is amazing possibilities, to a romantic it’s what happens when you fall in love and to a scientist it is something to be scoffed at, magic is something to everyone. What is magic to you?

It could be a familiar smell that brings back a memory, maybe it is silence to a frazzled mother or it might be the wonders of technology, any way you look at it magic means something to everyone. This week use your pen as a magic wand and share with us the magic in your world.

This week’s prompt, quote and photo was provided to us by Nino Taziz.  Thank you Nino for an inspiring prompt and helping us out here at Poets United.

  1. Dear friends,
    I was down and out. Someone I will miss thoroughly has continued her journey to a better place. I thought for a while - why can't I write? But Magpie Tales had a lovely prompt which coaxed my muse and now Robert's surprise prompt really got me on to a good start on my two feet - or pen again!

    Thank you everyone for the kind wishes!

  2. I just threw something together... hope you all like it! (Thanks for the prompt!)

  3. magic is when you have real friends among millions of strangers.
