Title: The Secret Garden
Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett
My friend Pete and I don't have children, but it didn't stop us from happily jumping on a pair of swings to see if we remembered what to do (we did, but Pete's long legs made it a bit tougher for him!). It was wonderful to swing for a bit and to reconnect with the childhood magic left inside of us. In a way, the magic inside of us is what this website is about. For me, words are magical. (Ask anyone who's been to my apartment recently and they'll tell you about the hundreds of colorful letters I've spent hours cutting out by hand. It's a little eccentric perhaps, but each word I create brings me such joy, I can't stop!) Since books are full of words, I find them magical too, especially when I'm reading and I stumble upon a well-crafted sentence about life--you know, the kind of sentence that so perfectly captures how you see the world; the sentence you wish you would've written yourself! Maybe I'll be a famous writer someday and maybe not, but regardless of that, in the mean time I have this website where I can share these magical words with you!
Renegade thought of the day: What magic is inside of you? How do you share your magic with the world?
