I lived in Scotland for about a year as a child and I was captivated by the myth of the Loch Ness Monster. When we visited Loch Ness and I remember feeling certain I was going to see Nessie. I wanted so desperately to believe in some kind of magic even though, at the ripe old age of 8, I was already a skeptic and wise to the world (or so I thought).
For those of us who feel battle-hardened by life, it can be tough to open up ourselves to the magic of the moment. I think that’s one of the many opportunities we have before us; the chance to reconnect with now since tomorrow holds many uncertainties.
So, maybe we let a little Nessie into our life from time to time.
