The adventurer in me seeks the adventurer in you
For soulful journeys across oceans
And spiritual realms
For love induced delirium
And caffeine inspired moments
We’ll walk through the back alleys of cities
Getting lost in photographic moments
Of gritty dirt and beautiful arches
We’ll jump in the sea
Just to play with the ocean
We’ll sip tea in secret gardens
And have wine in hidden rooms
We’ll meet poets and playwrights,
Scientists and academics
We’ll have conversations
With lost souls and enlightened hearts
We’ll look for the meaning of life
Whilst getting high on the reality of the moment
We’ll seek answers we’ll never find
Whilst dancing on pavements
And giggling at raindrops
We’ll cry our hearts out at the pain we encounter
Then dry them with the beauty of life
And the occasional slice of chocolate
But never be settled
We’ll have homes
But also places to roam
We’ll never be ordinary
And we’ll never be rude to the waiters
But maybe we’ll throw about our baggage
And stab each other from time to time
It’s OK because all wounds heal
So long as they aren’t mortal
We’ll know reality
But we’ll turn it to poetry
Because living is an art
And we’re the ones with the blank canvases
Waiting to be filled
With the paint of our hearts
You’ll need the heart of an explorer
And the eyes of an artist
The mind of an adventurer
And the courage of a bear
Love is the hardest journey
And the most beautiful of all
I realized that if I am to live the life of my dreams, I have to get real about who I am and what I want. I’ve written about taking responsibility for my choices. I’ve written about breaking down my life into manageable chunks and creating joy in the moment. I’ve written about facing my emotional fears. But this is me. This is the poet in me. This is me living the emotions I hide, yet the very same emotions I seek.
I won’t find them unless I dare live them.
Every day I feel a little bit happier as I let that poet shine through a little more. That hopeless romantic who prefers traveling the world without a map, just so as to be able to get lost in cities and encounter moments she never knew existed (OK, so I do like carrying a map, just occasionally not using it).
To create your dream life, you have to dare to live it. You have to dare to be who you truly are. Otherwise, how can you create what you truly want? How can you create a living expression of your heart if you aren’t prepared to first show that heart?
Magique is about creating poetry in the moment for people. Magique is about wielding magic to create beautiful experiences that evoke all senses.
The movies I have rattling around in my mind are about sharing poetic (and funny) moments with people; about showing people the poetry of life.
And the life I want to live is a life filled with everyday poetry. Magic. Beauty. Truth. Freedom. And love.
So here’s the vulnerable person in me, cheering the vulnerable person in you – let’s create poetry together. Because an arm of possibility is stretching across the ocean this morning, leaving a trail of mist and sparkling sunbeams. It’s a call to adventure and a promise of peace. It’s everything and nothing. It just is. But it’s all about how you view it. I view it as an ocean of opportunity and a moment of poetic bliss.
