I'm inclined to believe in fairies.

I'm inclined to believe in fairies.
Whether or not we can see it, I believe that there is magic in the world. Today the forest was buzzing with life. Spiderwebs clung to the underbrush, birds flitted through the branches, and the air hung heavy around my face. Sometimes summer air feels so thick you could cut it with a knife. I used to hate it. When I was a child summer air felt suffocating. But today I relish the humidity. I love how summer air extracts the mossy scent of earth and blows it through the trees. I catch whiffs of it in the garden. It smells like ice cream, river swims, and summer romance. And when the moisture gets too much to bear, the whole sky swells and bursts with a downpour and evening thunderstorm. It's enough to break the heat, however briefly, and we can all breathe easy for a time. This changing of seasons brings life to the raspberries, the fireflies, and the cicada song. I find it undeniably magical. Out of all the places there are to live in the world, I often marvel at the chance that I happened to be born exactly where I want to be.

The outfit I'm wearing has a bit of a theme. My skirt is covered in good luck motifs and my shirt depicts a sleeping woman entranced by fairies. They seemed to fit together nicely as I was getting dressed so I went with it. I guess it's just a day for luck and magic. So yes, I'm inclined to believe in fairies. There's too much magic in the world to dismiss them, don't you think?
