Thank God It’s Monday! #tgim #mondayquotestoliveby

Here’s a quote to get our week started, from Lev Grossman’s 2014 The Magician’s Land, the third in his brilliant R-rated Narnia-meets-Harry Potter-with-a-dose-of-Catcher In the Rye-trilogy, in honor of the fact I just learned the books were made into a series for the SyFy Channel:

“Doing magic was like finally finding the work you’d been groping for your whole life. You’d always known what you wanted to say, it was on the tip of your tongue, you almost had it, you knew it a moment ago but somehow forgot it–and then there it was. Casting the spell was like finally finding the words: there, that’s what I meant, that’s what I’ve been trying to say all along.”
