If any of your are like me let me know.
Me I like to perform, for anyone willing to give me there time, I always thank them for it too. Because in this world as fast as it goes, they could be doing a million other things but they are not.
When I'm not performing I like to watch it, usually I only watch my many friends that I have made over this site and facebook, there performances. I also watch the odd video put out by one of the many internet company's that sells tricks and have sites about magic. 1 I like to watch friends main cause I think a lot of you are very talented and enjoy watching your performances. 2 Because like me you have a dream or a passion that I share along with you so that is my way of support for the art and the artist's. I respect that too the fullest, thats why Im a big supporter in TMN also I believe in this site ( it may sound a little weird the way I say it, but there's so much here, it has so much to offer and I bet that V has stuff line up that;ll kill it).
Back on topic Watching performances when I'm not performing I'm watching. I watch to learn, to get ideas. I feel I get my cup filled with the dose of magic we all require, I know you all get that feeling. You know the one where you just have to pick up a deck of cards, a coin what ever and just give yourself a dose of it. Not that it is a drug but sometimes you just have to try that routine out, or that move that feels good in your hands.
Soaking it all up, always going back to that book you have read a million times. Sometime I get a feeling I need something new to learn, I get it every couple of months. This is where I also like to take a look at things everything starts looking like a illusion, the I write all of them down but the one that sticks out I'll go to work on right away.
A couple of years ago I ended up breaking my cig threw card, I like performing that effect but buying it every so often a couple a year, it got to me. So I came up with a gimmick a routine and the effect can have any card selected and signed, penetrated, shown on both sides, restored and handed back. That was from one of those I need to practice modes I broke it while practicing and then it just all came to me right there.
On top of being a artist in magic, I also am a dad, some may know what I mean and some not. But I put a lot into family also, I have always wanted one not sure why but I like interacting with my kids. There smart I teach them but really they teach you at the same time, courage, hope, feeling.
So back to the teaching, kids have no box at all, anything they wanna do, they do it. I don't mean that as doing whatever. Be what ever, In there mind anything, my kids cooked a meal with lego blocks and books as plates<<< Imagination it's good for your magic, it good for the soul.You imagined who you are now, but that's another story and Im all over the place LOL. sorry
Well enough for tonight
Thanks guys for reading it was fun.
