“If our life lacks a constant magic it is because we choose to observe our acts and lose ourselves in consideration of their imagined form and meaning, instead of being impelled by their force.” Antonin Artaud, French Dramatist. Magic, is a very important element in our lives. Although it might be regarded as a discipline to fool people with illusions, it is not that simple. Magic is what drives our minds to think, to create, to innovate, it can be a form of thinking. If it weren’t for magical thinking, we might never have lights to shine in the dark or planes to fly in the boundless sky. Magical thinking is very important in developing life, however, in the hustle and bustle, people live with an absent of life. Magible, is initiated to change this situation.

Having plants and flowers in the hospital could improve people’s mental and physical health.
