Merlin’s Seven Most Magical Words

Welcome to my Crystal Cave.
I do love visitors!  Just as I love to explore the world outside my cave, visiting others near and far, as I’ve done for many centuries.  (Don’t get me started how much I enjoy today’s ice cream parlors and bakeries.)
Shall we talk about whatever questions you might have?  Perhaps something small and simple.  Like…
What is the meaning of life?
How can I possibly find it?
Well, the answer to both those questions is surprisingly brief.  It’s the same answer—and it has only seven words.
That’s right.  Only seven.  And they are the most magical words in the universe.
Now, my friend, follow me into my cave and I’ll explain.
