This Magic We Call Our Own

"To Build a Charm..." - Muntinlupa, 17 May 2015
“To Build a Charm…” – Muntinlupa, 17 May 2015

everything

we do

is an

act of

magic

waiting to

happen:

every word

we say

is an

enchantment,

a spell

waiting to

be cast.

 

for words

have power

and words

have might;

more than

movement,

more than

thought,

the words

we say

are weapons

are tools

are instruments

of purposes

that

drive us

shape us

change us

in millions

upon millions

of ways –

some drastic,

others discreet.

 

be wary

be canny

be savvy

about the

spells

you speak

you think

you do:

nothing is

free

and words

are never

truly harmless

nor do

they come

cheap.
