Pray to the Moon when She is round,
Luck with you will then abound,
What you seek for shall be found
On the sea or solid ground.

The Little Book of BIG MAGIC (Comfort For the Files)

I waited many days for some news. Today it came.

It turned out to be kind of bad -- none of it was good, or quite what I expected.

Once again, no one is special.

So, before I drag out my Anatomical Supply Catalogue & start working out some medical magick, I am going to fret, grapple, wring my hands, ask existential questions (with much futility) & feel sorry for myself. 

Then I will lay back & read The Little Book of BIG MAGIC (vol. 2) by Luke. In all likelihood, I will read it several times tonight.

Hand-written, illustrated & yellow thread-bound sometime in the 1990's by my beloved friend (Of Yore) Luke, this endearing text has survived residency in a minimum of five homes & three states. Sometimes I forget I have it, but I always seem to remember it when I need it. This is one of those times. 

I only wish I had vol. 1. (Or maybe I just wish I had Luke.) But I suspect it is out there in the hands of a friend, also serving its purpose as a source of smiles, happiness & MAGIC.

your blog is amazing, you're very talented putting it together.. so much depth.. i love this book you've put on here. i had a book once like this, well, wasn't hand-made but it was old, and relatively rare, "Living on the Earth" (Alicia Bay Laurel) and i accidentally put it in a pile of books being taken to donate to the library. but as you say, somebody has a treasure and may get some wisdom and light out of it. so, it's all good, indeed, no one is special to true nature, but humans have favorites, that seems to be how we are. this book that your friend made is so nice.. blessings

my friend, perhaps you would like to share it with your wee one? my Little Lad loves it. I think the images would print off relatively clearly. ;)

i have not seen this book Living on the Earth, but i looked it up & found a place where i can get an affordable copy. it looks wonderful. thank you for mentioning it.

i love your blog too, so i hope you return to this comment because i am having a terrible time reading it. something has happened with the formatting & it looks all jumbled up & chaotic and the words run vertically down the page. i tried two different browsers. both showed the same situation. do you know, is anyone else having this trouble?

Moma Fauna said...

thank you! but save it up my friends. i just might have to ask for a favour. :/

been thinking of you often & fondly of late, for several reasons which you will someday soon discover. ;)
