(Could it be that I am actually at a very rare 6 – balance – on my manic depression scale?  Or am I, after a couple of weeks of depression, expanding into a 7 – slightly expanded – and having it grounded by being slightly sick.  Oh, well, I’m not gonna agonize about it – going to celebrate it as me being relatively in balance, and see what comes next.)

Here’s some writing I generated at Art Church (ashevilleartchurch.com) yesterday.  The prompt was

What is magic to me?

Radiating energy in all directions (see drawing).

The instruction was to draw with our non-dominant hand something to represent "What is magic to me?"  I'm even less of an artist than usual with my non-dominant hand.

It comes from me, but is totally influenced and guided by being fully integrated in all the life around me.  Totally fascinated with the people, mesmerized by the natural world, astonished by the magic all around me.  My magic is possible because I participate in the magic all around me.  I am interesting because I am interested.  It’s what I am missing when I am depressed: in that state I am totally self-preoccupied, I lose my connection, my hookup with the people and animals and flowers and things and forces – the magic – around me.
