Hardly long enough to be momentous.
I'd like to see him assert that to someone traveling in a plane with an engine very recently filled with errant waterfowl - a moment can be extremely momentous

The petals do not generally fall to be beneath my feet, no. But sometimes things might fall into line, but what does that mean when you've disavowed the existence of magic?

What is magic?

-------------------------------------------------

magic = a collision of several coincidences.

magic is what a guy in a tuxedo does onstage when he makes doves come out of a hat;

magick is what we do when we realize that no entity that matters actually gives a shit what we make of our lives, so we might as well have fun with the process;

majik is the prenom of an amalgamated philosopher.

A thermos is magic. It keeps hot drinks hot and it keeps cold drinks cold. How does it know?

^It makes your drink be a closed system thingie let let's out neither the cold nor the warm or so they say in thermodynamics, which is a sort of magic too, like also the black arts of quanta and relativity, but the only real kinds of magic are
music

&

mathematics

It's when you listen to the people who know you best and because you did, you get to rock.

I'll tell you what's magic:

you are the only person awake for miles, watching the sun rise just for you.

you've stared at the throbbing red of a Rothko painting, and then suddenly you fall into it.

an itinerant preacher puts his hands over yours to pray but you fall backwards, seeing a million dancing diamonds of light radiating pure love, and you never hit the floor

you look around the room at some of the beautiful things you have made with your own hands and find nothing there but satisfaction and delight

an icy martini with the perfect balance of vodka, vermouth, and olives

Patty Griffin singing a song about her mom called "Burgundy Shoes"
