This quote by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, author of The Yearling and Cross Creek, has been a favorite of mine for over a decade. I am sure of that because one of the first things I did after buying my North Georgia mountain cabin was frame the quote and hang it on the kitchen wall. Your place of enchantment does not have to be a piece of property. You may find it in books and daydreams or meditation or any intangible place. Wherever yours may be, go there often and find magic of your very own.
I do not understand how anyone can live without some small place of enchantment to turn to.
—Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
Cross Creek, 1942
