A Map Is Magic*

A map is magic.
You sit at a table
looking down at
the map and with-
out moving, you
travel in time and
space to a distant
place. The “ancient
myths and dreams,”**
the hopes and fears
are maps and magic
showing us the path
to follow to the
distant place and
time, which is here
with us now.
