Glad to be back with you! I have been really hopping around to different states doing multiple tours and I captured some of my thoughts along the way and here are some for your viewing!
Quite a smattering, but it captures some of the essence of the pace that I have been going these past few months! In a couple of days, I will be heading back to that beautiful Old Virginia for a tour so I am hopping like a bug in frying pan.
The world of illusion is an ever expanding terrain. When I was young, I spent many hours honing the craft to the point that I had plateaued in my learning because I was not aware of other resources, nor did I possess the creativity to innovate. It was not until I became an adult that I experimented with bolder options of handling, sleights, and routines. Furthermore, I still am working at being more than just proficient in the field, but also specializing. What I mean is that recently, I have been approached by various clients to do close up magic. One is a repeat client who has seen my work before close up. I typically do not like doing card magic, but that is what I am most skilled. With this in mind, I have taken a different look at this and have embraced that I do card magic both stage and close up and that I need to have a command on the 52 (54 if you count the jokers) paste boards as a means of self bettering in my career. It is a learning curve that I never expected and frankly, it is very exciting! I will keep you posted!
