Title: Everyday Enchantments: Musings on Ordinary Magic & Daily Conjurings
Author: Maria DeBlassie
Genre: Inspiration, Meditations
Micro-meditations and celebratory reflections on actively living as a wild woman.
Everyday Enchantments is a love letter to the magic of everyday life, the sweet moments and the profound that we often overlook in our hurry to get from one place to the next.
This collection of essays reminds us to escape into the ordinary, find beauty in a simple cup of tea or rereading a beloved novel, and joyfully let our world turn upside down when synchronicity strikes in the form of wrong turns down forgotten lanes and unexpected midnight conversations with the moon.
Everyday Enchantments is a study in what it means to live deliciously, joyfully, and magically. And it’s an invitation to conjure your own bliss, because, let’s face it, we could all use a little more magic in our lives.
Everyday Enchantments is exhilarating. A creatively personal self expression that is a self help book at the same time. There are few who will not have The Hair Day essay resonate to their very core (Mrs. N sure did).
The author takes the daily mundane and crafts them into prose. This book simply screams to find JOY in your life. The simple things are profound. . . one just has to have the inner ability to understand that and appreciate them for more than what they seem to be.
Those who feel a connection to the Universe and feel in communication with it, will love this book. A cozy read on a fall day, a comfortable read on a spring day.
A book that awakens the soul. This is a book for all seasons.
