About

Welcome to Enchantment Learning & Living, an inspirational blog about the simple pleasures, dreams, and fantasies that bring true magic to the everyday. 

Welcome to Enchantment Learning and Living, an inspirational blog dedicated to the true magic of everyday life. 

Yes, true magic.  Those charmed moments and simple pleasures that make fantasy a reality--the deep dreams that leave you feeling as if your waking life is the illusion, the dreams your reality.  True magic is in the nightmares that help you face what you need to face, in the desert moon or a perfect synchronous moment.  It is in a visit from the trickster Coyote to set you back on your path (or joyfully get off it).  And of course, this fantasy life is in the everyday enchantments--proverbial spells, hexes, and glamors--that we cast often without realizing it and sometimes with unforeseen consequences (what's life without a few lessons learned the hard way or an accidental conjuring?).

At Enchantment Learning and Living I relish the simple pleasures that remind us that life is a waking dream.  Like that sumptuous early morning yoga or the much-needed afternoon cup of tea.  Or a day spent indulging in inspirational books and bubble baths to help you unwind before a night of magic dreams.  Yes, definitely that last one.  These are spells too, of a sort, crafting our lives out of wishes, thoughts, actions, routines.

So who am I?

...you might want to start with a less complicated question.  Recovering academic. Unapologetic introvert. Dream chaser.  Fantasy and cozy mystery book addict who will read any book with glitter, dragons, or sky pirates on the cover--and not ironically. Tea nerd, polka dot lover, kitchen witch, crystal-wearing sun gazer, forever looking for magic in my life and somehow always finding more fantasy in my reality than I thought was there. 

That's about what I know about myself.  That and I won't say no to a good cocktail or some kitchen conjuring.  Enchantment Learning and Living is a haven for people who want to to use their dreams and fantasy life to inspire their here and now.  So be warned, I will happily reject cynics, stuffed-shirts, and general nay-sayers in favor of people who are full-on-all-the-way in love with life and the glittery-gritty goodness of its magic--even when that magic scares us out of our comfort zones into deeper consciousness.  I've been in this world long enough to know that if you don't love enchantment, enchantment will never love you. 

So if you're the shameless mystical kind of person, the unafraid to be you-er than you kind of person, the full of inspiration and true magic kind of person, stick around.  There's plenty of everyday magic to conjure together here!
