Packing for magicAugust 18, 2013
Perhaps half the magic arises from the packing. There are always questions: Is it enough? Are we ready? After all, what we are truly preparing for is what happened some other year, or never at all. We have no idea what will arise before us, like a plume of dust, after we arrive.
The lists, the bags of what we deem necessary, the bins of sundries are what’s required to open us now to later freedom. We bind everything, wrap it in cargo netting, and set sail on it toward a lake as bewitched as our hearts.
