Children see magic because they look for it.

Christopher Moore

In his 2004 book “Lamb,” acclaimed author Christopher Moore tells the story of Jesus Christ’s childhood through the eyes of Jesus’ fictional boyhood friend Biff. Early on in the story, Biff tells us, “Children see magic because they look for it.” He goes on to recount how Jesus “shone like a bloom in the desert. But maybe I only saw it, because I was looking for it. To everyone else he seemed like just another child...” Because the book is written for adults, this line seems almost like an invitation. We were all children once. Perhaps, as adults, we may still see magic if we look for it.
