This happened yesterday.

I was walking in the city center yesterday, enjoying the crisp fall weather and taking pictures. I really had nowhere to go, just walked around and photographed. Right next to a mall, on top of a concrete divider pole sat a pair of pretty worn skating shows, kinda small size. They just sat there, no one close to them. The sight was kinda interesting and I took a photograph. Very quickly, I started thinking why they were there, what had happened, who owns them. It was like a little mystery story, unraveling in my mind.

About 20 minutes later I saw a little boy, maybe 10 or 11, sitting on a bench with a skateboard. He was crying. On top of his skateboard, neatly folded were his socks, he was barefooted (and it was cold here yesterday). I stopped and asked is he ok and he told me that some bigger kids from his school had stolen his shoes. I quickly unpacked my digital camera and showed him the pic I took and asked whether they were his shoes-and they were.

I couldn't let him walk barefooted on the cold asphalt so I carried him back to where I saw the shoes, which were still there. I have rarely seen anyone that happy.

Later, the boy's mother called and thanked me. I was kinda amazed how she could call me as I hadn't given the boy my card or even told my name. The boy had seen me performing at this school last year and told his mother "it was the magician" and the mother went thru a lot of trouble to find out who I was so she could call me.

It was such a small thing really, but it made me feel really good. Funny what can happen. Kinda magical.

That was indeed a wonderful and magical happening. That young boy will remember being rescued almost by magic for the rest of his life!

Not "kinda" Magical...but Magic, plain and simple. Thanks for sharing!

Too magical to be in the "Not vey magical, stil..." category. Mazeltov!
