sometimes magic bleeds.

Sometimes the magic just bleeds out...
And sometimes that's a good thing because your proximity is such that you're infected and inspired and can't help but to smile from the inside out.

Sometimes though, it happens while you're not looking and the next thing you know, you're on empty... like today. Something I can't put my finger on, as of the earth just spun off its axis like when the washing machine balance is off and you get that extra "thump thump" on the end of each rotation leaving you feeling inexplicably out of sorts...

I prefer the former.

"Real strength never impairs beauty or harmony, but it often bestows it; and in everything imposingly beautiful, strength has much to do with the magic."

...Herman Melville, Moby Dick, chapter 86 The Tail, 1851
