    I will give you one example when you might -just might- experience something like magic.

    Pick up a medal and put it in your palm. The warmth of your skin starts to penetrate into the cold metal and you start to feel that this small disk is becoming somehow a part of you. Touch the surface: rub it lovingly. It is only a skin, a cover. The real life is under the skin. Take it over to the window. Let some sunlight play on the high points of the design. It might change the expression on a face or add some movement to a figure. But in a different light, with a flick of your finger, you can change this play again and again.

    That medal is not a lifeless piece of metal anymore. It became your very own medal, which you -and only you- brought to life.
    And this is real magic.
