“There is magic everywhere around you, but most people are too busy being grownup to notice it.”
Sassafras Lowrey, Lost Boi

“I won’t tell you, dear readers, that she lived happily ever after. You should know all too well there is no such thing. However: she did live fully, and she loved widely, and she helped light the way for others like herself. How much more magic does one need than that?”
