Love and friendship

Do you believe in magic?

Do you believe in magic?

Children ask me, of course, “do you believe in magic?” and I’ve always said “no, I don’t”. I believe in different kinds of magic. There’s a kind of magic that happens when you pick up a wonderful book, and it lives with you for the rest of your life. That is my kind of magic. There’s magic in friendship and in beauty and… Metaphorical magic, yes.
