the magic moment*

Taken with my iphone,

“Every day, God gives us, as well as the sun, a moment when it is possible to change anything that is causing us unhappiness. The magic moment is the moment when a “yes” or a “no” can change our whole existence. Every day, we try to pretend that we do not see the moment, that it does not exist, that today is the same as yesterday and that tomorrow will be the same too.

However, anyone who pays close attention to his day will discover the magic moment. It might be hidden in the instant that we put the key in the door in the morning, in the moment of silence after supper, in the thousand and one things that appear to us to be the same.

“This moment exists, a moment in which all the strength of the stars flows through us and allows us to perform miracles.”
– Paulo Coelho

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.



  1. Sue at nobaddays

    Thanks for this! And what a lovely still moment in this kitchen.

  2. Catherine

    I love it.
    another one to bring to the photo workshop and share. Thank you!
    And – in this moment I’m saying YES to the chocolate cake I’m eating – and grinning with every bite!

  3. Dr. S

    Is that your kitchen?! Good gracious, what a beauty.
    If Catherine’s comment means what I think it means, I’m even more excited now for June to get here than I was before.

    Love it!
