Come with me
to the enchanted forest.
Trust the magic in the air;
it is real.
Take it with you wherever you go,
for the magic you feel and want
if you simply
There is something about a forest that is so magical to me. When my friend said she would be meeting with horse people on the trip but that I could take her car and go off exploring ... I was excited to see what beautiful and perhaps enchanted places I could find.
I popped in an old Bach cassette tape I have saved for many years (you never know when a road trip/cassette player convergence will come up!) I used to listen to it on my old sony walkman in the airport and it still worked! I swear it was like a gift from the heavens. The baroque violin concertos played into the spring air as I drove and drove the windy road through the redwoods. I pulled over again and again. I'd get out of the car and listen to the creek and watch the light come through the trees, breathe in ... and take pictures.
Yep, I found beautiful places ... and maybe a little enchanted too.
