A MAGIC BOX FOR YOU
What is a magic box? It’s a secret place for magical treasures. What are
these treasures? Funny things, sad things, glad things and even scary
things. A magic box is only for you. You can make the “box” in the air in a cloud, in your mind, in a shoebox or birdcage! It is yours to keep and it is magic because it contains places, times, people that aren’t like anything else you ever saw, felt, heard or dreamed about before.
Magic is about: surprise seeing a falling star, wonder when a magician pulls a rabbit out of a hat, and the delicious smell of pizza. It is also shivers in a spooky house.
You store these things because they leave a memory trace that you can’t forget. Magic changes you. Suddenly you feel different. It makes you understand what you didn’t know was there. Afterwords things around you look cleaner, shinier, bigger, clearer.
Make your magic box. It is always there for you.
