I am in magic for the long rune, of that there can be no doubt. I have not chosen magic, magic has chosen me. And for this gift I am greatly appreciative, and could not wish for a better skill. I amaze people every day, allowing people, even for quick seconds, to take the leap from reality into fiction, and inspire them and o make them believe that there is something more to life than what they see and what they are told. I love making smiles appear on children and the elderly's faces. I like seeing my parents proud of me. And I love to bring joy to the world in a unique way. It is with this pleasure that I continuemy studies in the art of prestidigitation, illusion, and magic. Without the joy, there would be no magic. And for that I am pleased. But there are other times where I wish I didn't have this talent, this skill. These times come when I am watching another magician perform. I remember what it was like to be that kid who is entertained at the birthday party. Those are the times when I wish that I still was oblivious to magic. Sometimes, I think of how sweet it would be if I didn't know a thing about this world of sleight of hand and illusions.Because then I still would be indulged in that world of amazement and misunderstanding. I mean don't get me wrong, I still see things that blow me away, and for those things I am greatful. But sometimes, just sometimes, I wish a double lift, then a snap, and a show of the changed card would still amaze me. Thoughts?
