To write “Magic Always Happens: My Daddy Loves Me!” Neophytos (Neo) Papaneophytou drew from his experiences raising his son. Seeing every day as a blessing, Neo and his son find joy in all their daily activities, especially when their two-year-old therapy dog, Mya, joins in!
In “Magic Always Happens” a single father and his son develop an inseparable bond just from living out their daily routine— from waking, making breakfast, walking to school, making dinner, to getting ready for bed. Hidden in those seemingly “mundane tasks” are the magical moments of their day and lives. Themes essential to good parenting such as sharing quality time with one’s children, meaning-making, dinner time, schooling, and family structure, “scaffolding” for life, and love in its ultimate form (agape) are well emphasized.
While Neo was born and raised on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus—a world away from his son’s upbringing in the New York City metropolitan area, his experience reflected in “Magic Always Happens” shows the impermeable bond between father and son spending quality time together, wherever in the world that may be. Such a loving bond is of course relevant to all loving fathers and their children, all around our global village!
