Do You Believe In Magic?


This brilliant yellow leaf fell in front of my lens just as I was snapping this photo at one of the ancient sites in Mexico. That was many years ago because of course, there is no travelling now. I was feeling frustrated to the point of tears when I took this shot, having encountered all kinds of obstacles to shooting a documentary. The leaf “came out of nowhere” to remind me that there is a kind of magic even when we can’t see it. These are rocky days with the pandemic and politics just to name a few. This reminds me as much as you to never lose hope and to always be who you are, with kindness and integrity, no matter what chaos in going on around you. Ground in the magic and miracles that exist even and especially when we can’t see them.
