The Magic Garden

 

“The sun is shining – the sun is shining. That is the magic. The flowers are growing – the roots are stirring. That is the magic. Being alive is the Magic – being strong is the Magic. The Magic is in me – the Magic is in me. . . It’s in every one of us.”

– Master Colin from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
