Do You Believe In Magic?

“Magic exists. Who can doubt it when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”

Yesterday, the legendary author Gabriel García Márquez died. Through his brilliant novels, like One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera he created worlds where magic reigned: “Storms raged for years, flowers drift from the skies, tyrants survive for centuries, priests levitate, and corpses fail to decompose.”

“Gabo” (as Márquez was called) with his poet’s soul could vividly see the magic that surrounds us, whether it’s the fantastical kind like haunted houses and Jesus rising from the dead, or the everyday wonder we often overlook, like fireflies, and macarons, and cuts that heal without a trace.

Dreams are magic. Long before I had met her father I dreamed of having a baby girl, and even bought a tiny dress I hung in my closet. Imagine my awe when I put that dress on my daughter for the first time. The invisible had become visible.

Forgiveness is magic, too. It transforms anger and vitriol into grace and love.

So in honor of Gabo—and mythical bunnies who bring chocolate eggs—we’ve created some “bewitching” projects for you: from dabbling in alchemy to creating edible art out of common kitchen ingredients. Check ‘em out below.

Márquez once said, “I discovered to my joy that life, not death, has no limits.”

Be limitless this weekend, be magical.
