If There Was Magic

If there was magic in my world.   I would be able to go to this place just because I need to be there.   There would be no need for travel, planning and expense.  I would just be able to close my eyes and be.


Because sometimes being somewhere else is just what we need.  To soothe.  Or comfort.  Or just not be where you are.

There’s nothing wrong with where I am.  But there are some places, that being there, feels good.

Ireland (365)

I could sit here.


For a very long time.

Ireland (368)

I could look at this.

Listen to this.

Smell this.

For a very long time.

Ireland (371)

I could wander here.

Imagine here.

Think of the trails before me.

Ireland (373)

I could go here.

Be here.

Be peaceful here.

Be selfish and hope no one wonders in to this world while I’m here.

Ireland (377)

I would never tire of wearing myself out.

Walking here.

Being here.

I don’t need to be here forever.

But I  sure could use being here.


Climbing Croagh Patrick

Sometimes, if there was magic, I would be here.

Do you believe in magic?

I do.

    • I think so. I hope so. As wonderful as I feel when I am there, I wouldn’t be able to stay there, even if it was that easy to get to. Because my heart beats live here. Here is most important to me. But I sometimes need those moments, even if rare, where magic happens and energy is restored. But now you have me thinking in five different directions about this. 🙂 Great question Katie.


  1. Beautiful Colleen.I love that you visualize that and then it got me to wondering if you would feel the same if you couldn’t see.I think that magic you speak of is a serene place that soothes the mind.Just lovely…


    • Oh so right! Those pictures are actually mine I took on a mountain climb in Ireland. We literally had the entire mountain to ourselves. No one else was there until we descended and another couple was preparing to go up. Serene. For my eyes, for my soul. Certainly the visual of this place is part of my magic. 🙂


  2. Those, incidentally, were beautiful photos of gorgeous landscapes… Ireland?

    But if there were magic, perhaps there would not be a place were you would “need” to be. You may simply go there because you “want” to. Indeed, if there were magic, there would be no “need”… Where’s Jeannie?


    • Good eye Koji. Yes those pictures are all from Croagh Patrick. We climbed it in 2007. No one else on the entire mountain until our descent and a very hesitant girl was getting ready to attempt to summit with her boyfriend.

      Oh, back to our story…

      Jeannie or Samantha….*sigh*
