Magic Hat

me hatI believe I have a magic hat- really I do. It is a fairly unassuming ring of gold fleece. I spied it in a local consignment shop called Serendipity. It matched my winter coat and I needed a hat. I learned all the traditional warnings about lice etc. in used hats but I slid it on my big head. It fit perfectly and covered my ears without being tight. Within a few minutes 3 strangers in the store suggested I buy the hat. So I did. The first time I wore it I noticed other drivers smiling at me upon passing- more than usual even when I am singing aloud. At the dog walk strangers seemed particularly friendly. It was Thanksgiving day when I knew the hat was magic. Drivers still smiled, one stranger even honked and waved. (I did pull over to see if I had a tire going flat or something.) Everyone at the dog walk smiled at me, strangers made conversation and one couple even yelled a greeting across the ball field. The weather cooled and I did not get a chance to wear the hat for more than a week. I started to question my magic hat decision and think of other more rational reasons. Then I wore the hat again- the same phenomenon happened! What fun, I wish I could wear it everyday- does magic wear out?

    • The magic is strong here – My house sold, I found the condo to move to and it is closing on the 14th. The giving away of possessions has never been so easy. I packed the books I was sure I wanted and then invited friends in to choose and take cases of books – we were both happy. Powerful energy.

  2. There’s something about hats…! I love to look at people who wear hats. Don’t know why..!
    Those who wear hats seem to be ‘comfortable with themselves’… Hmmmmm…
    Think I’ll stop worrying about ‘hat hair’ next winter (it’s summer in Oz) and get a hat…! 🙂
