Even the most ordinary occasions have a tinge of the fantastic about them. Well, they should, anyway.
Problems with deer nibbling at your vegetable garden? Try appeasing them with a spring bouquet. What if we rode to work on the back of a friendly echidna instead of limping along the interstate in a rusty car? Wouldn't allergies be a little more bearable if all that offending pollen swirled around us in a golden dance? And who hasn't gone for a walk on a wintery day and wondered if perhaps a mastodon lay sleeping beneath the ice, ready to awaken with the spring thaw? Young lovers dream about their future nestled in a dandelion's downy embrace, and an elderly couple can gaze into each others' eyes on the leaves of a geranium sprout just as easily as they can on a porch swing.
The magic's all around, people. If you can't find it, then do what I do and make it.
