He had performed all the necessary rituals, spoken the words, lit the candles, made the sacrifices. But happiness, like a disobedient spirit, refused to come.
–Lev Grossman, The Magicians
If all the trying, coaxing, and summoning can’t bring happiness, try taking a deep breath & letting out something crazy. Like crocheting spoon from top to tail. Do what comes naturally – you know, that natural that sites outside the “necessary” and “normal” box.
Make some magic.
