Call to a Wonderful Year “Magic is within your reach. In fact it’s very real and very common. Miracles happen when we create space within ourselves and in the world. Improving our own life and that of many others might be less hard work and more fun than we ever imagined.” Now here are 10, often very practical, ideas, that’ll help you to unlock that magic for yourself and others. They are presented as possible new magazines and article titles. For people with imagination it might be all the nudge they need, to get the whole. Hidden among the article titles you’ll meet people and friends that inspired me, ideas that ignited me and others and very possibly the shape of things to come. Have a wonderful year, FlorisBy Floris Koot Published under Creative Commons By Floris Koot December 2010
