Transformational Tuesday

This morning there is a cold chill in the air. Snow hangs above waiting to flutter down and wash the world white. Those magical little white flakes that are so unique and individual, seemingly blending together in a flutter of fluff. 

The house will be warm and the fire will be blazing. I love that. I love the feeling of the heat rising off of the flames, the flushed cheeks that appear when someone stokes the fire. I love the crackle and pop and smell of the smoke is it whisps out of the doors. I love everything about a cozy magical winter afternoon such as today. 

The templates are cut for the bird houses. The fairies are invited to the party. I get giddy every time I look at the flower lights poking out of my herbs keeping me company in my art room. The energy of winter has slowed everything down. Music plays creating an atmosphere of calm and serenity. Truly, in these moments life is good. Add a simmering pot of soup to the stove and life becomes perfect leaving merely "good" far behind. 

In moments like these when I have left my troubles far behind and entered another realm, a creative space of existing in "no time", things taste sweeter, life seems longer and I can live in a heart space filled with love. I suppose this is where playful fairies live full time and I suppose this is why we only glimpse the possibility of them. We only get to pop into their reality once in a blue moon, when snow looms and winter opens a secret doorway. I'll glady share that space today even if only in imagination. Even if only for a short while I will breath in the love and transform my spirit for one afternoon to dance in the magic.
