Wardrobes

One of the many things I love about books is there ability to add possibilities and magic to our everyday worlds.

Shadows become adventures, tesseracts are possible, cottages in the woods are mysterious, and walking through wardrobes can lead us into another world altogether.

I like how looking at a wardrobe can remind me of Narnia, how glancing at a golden ring brings to mind Hobbits and Elves, how a simple letter can lead me to platform 9 3/4, and how seeing a little girl wearing ruby red shoes can take my mind on an adventure and bring me back home again.

Books are magic indeed.

    I have to admit, I was attracted to this post because of its awesome title. But I think there is something to be said about magic actually existing in our world. How else can one explain the fluttery, excited feeling we feel when we look upon the objects that you’ve described, for example? I personally can’t look at any old grandfather clock without thinking that it should be a doorway to another world. :)

      Well said, Steph! Magic is everywhere in our world, if we can just open our eyes and really look around! And it’s so fun to have that magic even more enhanced by wardrobes and grandfather clocks!

      Thanks for commenting and sharing your thoughts!
