Welcome to Something Even More Magical. Do you ever feel that there is something magical around us that we only sometimes see? Have you ever had an intense religious experience, felt your heart break at a sunset, or fallen in love with a kind stranger? How do we leap up and catch these elusive seconds, find the key, open the door, and step inside the moment--and then not fall asleep and wake up outside, thinking it was all a dream? I believe that the great religious traditions provide ways of life that can help us in this quest, as do simple people living simple lives, including ourselves. It has been said that life is our greatest teacher. That if you try, there is a chance that you will fail, but if you never try, there is a 100% chance that you will fail. Join me in daring to explore life, seek magic, and BE beyond our wildest dreams.

Assalamu `alaykum Katie! I wanted to be the first one to sign up for this "journey" :)

Your words and your friendship have always inspired me so I'm looking forward to many days of reading and travelling together.

Congratulations on your new blog, love!

We all need to be conscious of all the extraordinary things happening in the midst of our lives as we live them.

"And among His wonders is your sleep, at night or in daytime, as well as your quest of some of His bounties: in this, behold, there are messages indeed for people who listen! And among His wonders is this: He displays before you the lightning, giving rise to fear and hope, and sends down water from the skies, giving life thereby to the earth after it had been lifeless: in this, behold, there are messages indeed for people who use their reason!" (Qur'an: 30: 23-24; Muhammad Asad's interpretation).

May the guidance of our Creator be with us as we contemplate His signs, and bless you, Kat, for encouraging us to be awake to them!

Hi KK. I love the message of your blog. I have experienced many moments like you describe and they usually involve nature given to us by God.
Frequently they involve the gift of you.
