If You Believe - What Would/Could Be Possible

Morning friends!  Today we are celebrating one of my favorite movies, "Practical Magic".  It's a story of two sisters who share a rare bond.  Born and raised in the neighborhood 'Witch House' needless to say they were the odd ones of the community.  Yet through their lives they learn life's lessons as most of us do by taking risks and learning from our experiences. 



It gives a lesson of friendship and/or sisterhood that few find.  A closeness that is rare these days when it seems that everyone is worried about what others may think if they knew the real person behind the mask.  Which is funny because we all wear them. 



I love however, in the end a number of women come together to help those, who before they were skeptical of.  They lay aside their predjudices and beliefs for a moment to help because one is in need.  I like to think that such feats are not just something that happens in movies.  



I also love the innocence of Sally, who as a young girl is afraid to suffer the pains and losses of love.  Because of this fear she creates a Love Spell asking for one to be sent her way that is so unique that he could not possibly ever exist.

 Amas Veritas - True Love Spell
He will hear my call a mile away
He will whistle my favorite song
He can ride a pony backwards
He can flip pancakes in the air
He will be marvelously kind
His favorite shape will be a star
He will have one green eye and one blue

Ah but love is love and it will occur when and where it wants.  We do not have the power to attempt to summon it away.  And Sally's unique love interest very well does exist.

I invite you to take a journey today through the various other blogs who are also celebrating Practical Magic; each in their own unique manner.

Sara said...

It is amazing what a group of woman can do... to lift each other and support each other. The joining of their hands has always been my favourite part of the movie.

Love your post. :)

Willow said...

I just love this movie. I think I have seen it a thousand times. When I start to feel down I will sometimes put it in the VCR and watch it. I also have the book, which is nothing like the movie and I have it on DVD.

I love this spell. When I was young I used to wish for a handsome boy could make dreams come true with his voice; an artist who could take me out of this world with his wonderful words. I got a gorgeous man, but his power/art is not about words, but music. But the Old Powers heard my prayers, for every time my mans gets behind a piano and plays for me, his music truly takes me out of this world and into one only he and I exist.

Yes, I know it's Monday - and I'm still going around and visiting. I can't spend long periods of time on the computer - so it complicates how fast I get done visiting.
Great Party post, Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and magic with us.
Brightest Blessings,
Penny

Susan said...

you are so right, love falls where it will, and sometimes we love the wrong person, or the right person at the wrong time. love is a risk, sally was afraid to take, a little push from the aunts and she had loved Michael...they didn't think she would REALLY LOVE him. Right guy, wrong time. Gilly took risks, wrong guy at any time, LOL.

I know there are many of us that can say we too have had places in our lives where we were afraid to try to love again. Also times we always seemed to manage to find the wrong guy.

Great post!!
Thanks for sharing.

Please visit mine, last day for the giveaways...til midnight tonight
