Love stories about old houses and family secrets.

This poem, written by my friend’s 10-year-old daughter, tells us everything we need to know about who we are. We are magic.

If you try to do what has never been done,
You are magic.

If you jump so high you reach the sun,
You are magic.

If you go and do something that could not be,
Or are the best you could ever be,
You are magic.

If you keep on going when the bad guys say no,
And keep on going to all the places you will go,
You are magic.

When you climb to the top of any old tree,
Or brave the wonders of the great big sea,
You are magic.

If you be you and I'll be me,
We are magic…

…and always will be.
