unicorns without horns

Jenny and Sparrow were coming home from dropping Nate off at school.

When they passed by the camp stables, Jenny noticed that Sparrow was getting more animated

When Jenny looked in the rear view mirror to see what was going on, Sparrow exclaimed with great excitement, “I SAW A BUNCH OF UNICORNS WITHOUT HORNS!!”

“A bunch of unicorns without horns.”

Of course, they were just horses.

“Just horses.”

But, to a child… or an adult with an uncorrupted sense of wonder, they could be a field of unicorns….without horns.

Isn’t it funny how our sense of what is possible is damaged by what we accept as our reality?

Why do we suppose that the possibility of magic in our world is unrealistic?

I know that a horse is…a horse.

Of course a horse is a horse.

But what if they really were a field of unicorns without horns?

How cool would that be?
