“Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace and power in it.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The last two days have been brutally hot in NY. I must have dropped a few pounds from all the sweating. As I write this post, I have a headache and it’s not from laughing at another silly joke sent to me by my sister or girlfriends. Yes, we cranked up the A/C and have cross ventilating fans blowing hot air up our
a%&% noses. My Heat & A/C guy assures me that the A/C is not on the blink…
“It’s been so hot that homes are not cooling off and the A/C has reached its capacity,” he said.
“What about the people in Vegas, how do they cope?” I retorted.
“Oh, they have bigger A/C’s and State allowable wattage. Consider moving to Vegas or Canada” he added
“Hmm mm. Should I move to Canada, Vegas or Arizona then? I won’t complain, it could be worse, right?”
I know they have bigger A/C’s, lights and gambling tables in Vegas but I don’t want to move there… and while I love my Canadian friends and family, I don’t want to move there either. I love NY, and the heatwave is just a temporary nuisance I hope. I mean, I don’t want to start on my global warming, environmental lament… as things could be worse. I’ve written on that elsewhere on this blog, but I do wonder…
“Love and magic have a great deal in common. They enrich the soul, delight the heart. And they both take practice.” Anon
So, please forgive me as this prompt from Plinky leaped at me like a Vegas neon sign: You just acquired a magic wand. What will you use it for? I need a Magic Wand to put the heat to bed. I’m taking Goethe’s advice above and putting my imaginary wand into action. Yes, yes, it will cure all of mankind’s ills and all the big things we wish for, as well as simple every day irritants. UPDATE: It will also end all acts of violence; my condolences go out to all the families of those who lost loved ones in Oslo and Utoeya in Norway. 🙁
Here goes: my list of ten things Circe’s or my magic wand will do for NOW.
♥ Send this nasty heatwave packing
♥ Convert my buckets of sweat into moola for an extended vacation
♥ Help me shed those extra pounds
♥ Shower Happiness, Love and Abundance on everyone now
♥ Help me guess what the top 10 most-answered Plinky prompts are?#10 is What’s your favorite live music venue?
Please keep in mind that the magic wand is not limited to ten gifts… It’s like the energizer bunny and this is a light hearted post. I know I could wave that wand and change the world, I did already… look around you and see the joy. Then spread some too. What would you do? More below… 🙂
“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
♥Provide healing for all who are sick
♥End pain and suffering around the world – Meet every person’s needs

♥Change the world for good, starting now, not just on December 21, 2012 as some seers predict
♥Get all of our blog posts up there in the stratosphere and on WP’s hot topics
I usually write longer posts but I honestly think it is refreshing to write a short post. I actually followed Erika’s lead and wrote this in under 30 minutes. If you got here earlier, you would have found out that five of the items on my list were still in blog heaven .. on their way down. Oh the joy of blogging; we can add and subtract at will. Now, where is that wand?! 🙂
What about you? What are your thoughts? What would you add to my ten things? What would you do with a magic wand? Do share! Thank you. 😉
This post was inspired by a prompt from Plinky: You just acquired a magic wand. What will you use it for?
