Welcome to Everyday Magical Things!

Everyday Magical Things was a fun little project that began around the same time as Minute Faith, with the intention being simple text-based animations that show that there is literally magic in everything, if only we are open to seeing it!

Literally, everything in existence is an ingredient in some kind of alchemy, and therefore if we can open up to seeing things for more than just mundane objects, things such as feathers or tea or oils or plants, we can find instead – magical healing tonics, tools for spiritual cleansing, and ingredients to make very healing dishes.

The possibilities are endless, and the basis of this series too was that it’s “endless”. One day, we will put this series back into full production, but in the mean-time, please enjoy the many videos we have created in this playlist.
