Vilano Beach Dragonfly Sometimes, I feel the magic when I'm camping & everyone is asleep, including the dogs, and the fire is snapping and spitting, throwing images and shadows my way, and the wind is blowing whispers and wings all through the night. All I can do is just think, watch and listen to feel that feeling.
Sometimes, I feel it when I am in My Own World, doing My Own Thing, and I get interrupted by the hardy, heartfelt laughter of a child or a stranger. It echoes down the hallway, down the street, through the trees, across the yards to me. It doesn't bounce off of me, I absorb it & it fills me with that special magical feeling.
I have had that feeling walking along, as a butterfly landed on my shoulder then fluttered to my chest, and finally proceeded to dance with me and around me all the way to my destination.
I have that magical feeling when I find old, mishaped, well-loved & forgotten marbles in the yard or in the walls of this 103 year old house ... feeling the stories, tales & times of days gone by.
Today, I had that magical feeling when I rolled down my car window, as I pulled up to the red light, only to look to my left and see a dragonfly hovering there, eight inches from my nose, looking at me. The light turned green, as he sailed to the front center of my windsheild. As if held by the circumvent of wind created by my right-hand turn and acceleration. The dragonfly road outside my front windsheild, facing me the whole time, fluttering slightly towards the center of the windsheild then back again, facing me. One more light & two more left turns saw me to work. Upon arrival, my co-worker was waiting for me outside & I quickly popped out of the car, with this one crazy dragon fly zooming around my car & now my head. My co-worker said'I think theyr'e supposed to mean good luck.' I said "Oh, I hope so" and smiled.
I don't know if any of these things bring 'Good Luck,' but they all give me that magical feeling... That Feeling that I Belong Here, on earth.
So, What Is It that Gives You that Magical Feeling, that feeling that You Belong Here?
