Upon leaving an appointment, a familiar fear of the unknown sets in.

She said to leave with awareness, that transitions are important. I

proceed down the steps of the old Victorian home and reach for the old

fashion doorknob, turning it carefully to the right to let myself out.

As I step onto the porch, closing the door carefully behind me, I

pause. A faint breeze on my face. I instinctively turn to the delicate

sound of a wind chime hanging to my left, discreetly. I am acutely

aware of the most patient and caressing notes reaching my ears. So

harmonious and soft, so unexpected and pleasing, that I think to

myself; this very simplicity, this authentic moment must be what magic

is made of.

Mr. & Mrs. Stripe
