When I was growing up, magic was the stuff of books and movies. I always thought that the reason I loved Disney World (and Christmas, and other traditionally magical times and places) was that I was a kid who needed to believe in magic and dreams, because day-to-day life was often tough.
I have often wondered if kids who had it different than I did could ever believe in magic, and the possibilities that dreams really do come true, as much as I did (and do).
We had lunch at the Crystal Palace today. It is a beautiful, glass and metal restaurant in the Magic Kingdom. Our hosts were Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends and we were happy to be included.
I was sitting opposite, and to the side, of Mac. Behind me was a huge mirror, which Mac was using to watch for Tigger.
I’ll let you judge, by her facial expressions as he gets closer, whether you think someone who didn’t have it all too rough as a kid (though still might write a book about me, who can tell?) could embrace the magic as much as I do …
The magic is strong with this one.
