Where does magic exist?

I was looking through my stats and it turns out a lot of people are wondering if magic exists.  So I thought I'd write a series of articles about magic, what is magic, and finding magic in today's world.

Defining magic isn't a completely easy thing to do.  One definition is: Any art that invokes supernatural powers.  By the above definition if you say a prayer to find a job, or for your child to get over a cold...you're doing magic.

Some people really like to use the "k", and say magick.  Well Aleister Crowley says in the broadest sense, is any act designed to cause intentional change.  Well if I punch you in the nose, I'm definitely acting to cause intentional change.  How about if I just hope to pass that math test on Friday?  Does that count?
