My life is now complete.
A young man who works part time at my library is a HUGE Harry Potter fan. He has been following Harry for 10 years. This young man is now 18, and just graduated from high school (done with school the same year Harry is done with school!), and is anxiously awaiting the 7th and final book of the series (as so many of us are).
Anyway, he brought me a gift. Well, not really a gift...I did ask him to make it for me, but that's not the point. He made me my very own wand!! He hand crafted it from a piece of wood - whittled it into shape, sanded it, stained it, and sanded it again. It is absolutely gorgeous!!!
And without further adieu - here is my wand...
