Weekly Photo Challenge: Magic

For this week’s challenge, find some magic, and charm us with it. I followed the dewy fragrance and stumbled upon the garden. It twinkled and rustled.

Humanity is a term that refers to all of us. All … not all with a but or except … simply all. Regardless of skin color, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, location or any other qualifier or disqualifier, humanity includes the characteristics human beings have in common.
