Every Thursday, Maggie Crawford outfits her golden retriever, Kai, in a harness and a neckerchief adorned with four gold stars. After that come the name badges, which identify Kai as a dog with a mission. “ID#59773—Pet Assisted Therapy at Huntington,” one badge reads. By the time the day is done, Crawford and Kai will have made their weekly rounds at Huntington Hospital, through the pediatric unit and the brain mapping department where patients’ seizures are tracked. They will have stopped by the medical records office to visit employees more than happy to ignore the filing long enough to sneak in a hug or a scratch behind the soft folds of Kai’s ears.

I've often ponder the meaning of life's happenings. Sometimes, life is lived for its own sake and in the process of trying to uncover meaning, we miss those moments in time. And sometimes, in order to experience the essence of life's moments, we need to understand its depth of meaning. Perhaps more than any other holiday, Christmas is that time of year when we try, at any cost, to uncover and experience those tidings of comfort and joy. Somewhere, deep within our conscious, we desperately try to connect with the miracle that we once understood?

Harry Potter has spoiled us. The boy wizard raises his wand to cast a magic spell and by the grace of computer generated images, presto-change-o, the magic occurs right there before our eyes. No smoke, no mirrors, no sleight-of-hand. It's real magic. Or as real as it ever gets on a two-dimensional screen. Ever since the first Potter movie was released in 2001, audiences have settled back and entered into a world of magic that a willing suspension of disbelief defines as real. Magicians don't go home at night and design new mechanisms to trick the credulous, they polish their wands and brush up their invisibility cloaks.
