The journalist John Gile, in one of his books, writes: “My 4-year-old daughter has a magic body. I told her so and it’s true. Recently she fell off a swing and cut her hand. No big deal. We just gave her hand a good washing, applied a band-aid, and gave her a hug. In a day or so the cut was gone, vanished without a trace.
“Some cynics will say, ‘That’s not magic. There’s a Latin name for it and a boring description of the process.’
