today i am consumed with the idea of making magic happen
i think the world's true nature is magical
i think that underlying every living and inanimate thing is magic
and i love it when people make that visible
this letterbox was in a tiny place called Blackpoint. The first place in New Zealand to have electricity - because it generated it itself because it was a goldmining town
now only about 12 people live there
but we stopped there because Willow wanted a toilet stop. Then i saw this letter box and took a photo, then we noticed a sign to a museum and gold battery and we left 5 hours later filled with stories and gifts of ideas of things to do and my girls had a glimpse into the lives of my grandparents...
this beautiful quirky handmade with love and magic letterbox lead us on that journey - totally unexpected into the past and the future
so to whomever made it thank you
you have inspired me to make magic happen wherever i can because i can trust it to open doors that won't have otherwise been there

i welcome you with warmth and love to the thoughts that grab me .... and the way they come out of my fingers when i make the time in my day as a mother and artist and poodle walker to write them down.....
