Day 2041: life-changing magic

Have you heard about this book by Marie Kondo:  “the life-changing magic of tidying up”?

Today, I want to give equal time to the life-changing magic of other things, including NOT tidying up.

No matter how much we wish to tidy up, there are always new messes to deal with!

Would you agree that there’s life-changing magic in music?


I look forward to the life-changing magic of your comments.

There’s life-changing magic in gratitude, so thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU.

  1. Love it!! Good luck with your life changing magical performance xoxo

  2. Looks and sounds good to me, Ann.

  3. Music can indeed be life changing magic!

    I am getting closer and closer to decluttering and simplifying. I can’t sit amongst clutter…..all I can think about is what needs done….

  4. The Magical Mystery Tour – That’s Life

  5. There is an orange cat with a crooked tail sitting on me in bed. That is magic!

  6. A lot of artists have messy studios. A woman having her portrait painted by Francis Bacon was annoyed at one point when she realized he wasn’t looking at her but at a picture of a rhinoceros on the floor, but the portrait turned out nicely.
    Messiness is the wellspring of creativity.

  7. “Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.”- Gustave Flaubert

  8. As if by magic, two lunch-bound groups met at the elevators today, and we were all headed to the same place. We merged into one larger group, and it was a lovely lunch with some folks I rarely spend time with, but as it turns out, should do more often!

  9. Oh yes, I have two of Marie Kondo’s books…they’re lovely to read and just reading them made me feel peaceful about taming clutter. But to eliminate clutter I’d have to devote more hours of every day. The clutter of life comes in “fast and furious” and I do what I can each day without being a slave to tasks. The song that first came to my mind with your title is “Magic” by the Scottish pop rock bank Pilot, from the early 1970s. Now it’s stuck as an ear worm! Good thing I liked the song. 🙂 I hope you have a magical weekend, Ann.
