Magic Happens (Happy 100th!) Sparkle Snow Globe

As I pulled together the thoughts and images to post this art today, I realized that this was my 100th blog post.

Back a few months ago, when I realized this “magic” number was approaching, I thought I should plan ahead and write something special.

But I got busy with this and that, and the joy and heartbreak of every day life, routines and surprises, hope and disappointment and here it is: the Magic 100.

And the globe that was ready to post?

Magic Happens.

There’s a story behind this sparkly snow globe, with the dancing silver flecks, ice-blue glass heart and a just glimpse of an iridescent heart (if you don’t blink!) … but I can’t tell it here.

I was inspired by someone with a true blue heart, and can only say that when you shake this globe, and the world fills with light, and laughter, and hope, for a moment you will believe.
