Ordinary miracle

– People where you live, – the little prince said, – grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they are looking for...

– They don't find it, – I answered.

– And yet what they are looking for could be found in a single rose...


Read these lines by Exupery very carefully and heed to their meaning. After all, it is absolutely true that magic happens around us – every day, every hour, every minute. But why have we forgotten how to notice it? Why does it not surprise us at all when a fruit ripens in a tree or when another heart begins to beat next to a woman's heart?.. For us, this magic has become a routine, normal. We just pick and eat the fruit. We just say: "I am pregnant." How is it possible? This is a real miracle, inexplicable, incomparable to anything! Just think: a new human is growing within us, who will soon be born, and he will have his own feelings, thoughts, desires! And most importantly, he will have his own soul... It is the magic the Little Prince was talking about. Does it matter how many roses are in the garden, if one rose is already a magic?..

P.S. This month I visited Cappadocia thanks to our new magical project TRAVEL BLOG LOVE, NARGIS. I admit, there are no words to describe the energy of this area, the kindness of the locals and the beauty that has opened up to our eyes. I constantly find myself thinking: “How is this possible? How could nature create such beauty, such patterns on the rocks?” I guess I'll never find the answer, no matter how much I may try to explain it scientifically. It has no explanation! It is just magical Cappadocia and that is it!
