Through the magical window...

Have you ever felt on an autumnal day, when the world is mellow under tumbling leaves and crimson skies, that magic is possible? I mean, really possible? Imagine looking out of your window to see your favorite city in the world; imagine your window is a magical window from where you can see any panorama you wish to see, or perhaps even another world, or worlds?

Time is suspended in jewels of magical shades; it’s to do with the arrival of autumn, and if I close my eyes right now, I can see myself looking out this magical window I was just talking about...
And what do I see? I'm in the forest, of course. And since I can be whomever or whatever I want to be in this world of “make-believe”, I am the Lily in the movie “Legend”, and I'm right there, in that lovely cottage deep in the woods. Have you seen that movie, “Legend”? It really isn't as magical as you might think.  In fact, the only part I love, aside from the enchanted forest and the unicorn, is the part when Lily finds the little cottage in the woods... Someone is baking, and there is a table filled with all sorts of goods and sweets, and there are creamy milk chocolate cakes and gooey caramel pastries and flaky croissants...

Soft light is streaming down the open windows and delicious peace hovers all around the little cottage. Delightful imageries; isn't it! Well, can I share a secret? I can certainly dream, and I can imagine all I want, but really, all I need in 'real life' for my contentment are but a few things... inner peace, self-acceptance and a clean conscience.
If your soul meets these few requirements, then you go make yourself the best cup of coffee you can, or tea if you prefer, and sit in the porch facing the garden…
...and you’ll have yourself a little bit of bliss. Actually a whole lot of bliss! Real life bliss!

Have a lovely weekend my friend!

PS: We're going to the mountains again tomorrow... joyfully, we don't have to use our old tent any more... yes, we bought a brand new tent trailer just today and I can hardly wait to try it! I'm so excited. Hopefully, it'll be cozy and warm inside.... oh, cross your fingers! Pictures coming up! ;)
