While the magic of the holidays' winds down, there are still sparks of it in the air.  January is a time of renewal, which is also a form of mystery and magic on its own. It is a time we shed off all the hardships of the previous year and step into a new mindset, perspective, and excitement for the new year. Memphis has two interesting ways you can catch glimpses of magic.
