My Blog: It's Just Another Magic Monday

My first word was "See" and I would point to a light when I said it. 

 I find that to be interesting and will pursue this with a passion on this page. 

 I am going to be uploading and emailing a weekly blog on Mondays to share life's magical moments, stories of synchronicity, and dreams/visions coming true in my attempt to help us remember that even in a time where things seem upsetting, negative and dark, there is still a lot of magic, positive and wonder in the world.  

Please take a moment to sign up on my email list so that I may send a little light to your day each week...and feel free to share my stories as it is my feeling that they could help brighten yours and someone else's day.

Thanks for reading and sharing,  Todd
