Welcome to my blog--I'm planning on posting ideas around family, parties, entertainment etc. For my first post--I want to take a moment to thank all of my clients! I've been performing at children's parties now for over 25 years--and I always feel honored to have an opportunity to play a role in someone's celebration! I've had the opportunity to perform at a kid's birthday party--and many years later--after they've grown up and started their own family--I've been honored to perform for their children as well (It sure would be nice to keep that trend going for a few more generations--feel free to comment with your life extension theories!).
I was talking to a new client today and she was asking me how long I had been doing this and how I got started. While I was telling her that magic was my childhood hobby and that I'd been performing for over 25 years--I couldn't help thinking how lucky I was. I actually have the honor and privilege of getting paid to do something that I love--something that I would do for free (if my daughter Madison wasn't in college). When I'm performing at a party, I get to be a kid again. I get to play, be silly, and have fun. I also get to see the joy and wonder in the faces of my audiences. It's one of the few experiences in my life where I can consistently achieve a state of flow. Magic is a metaphorical reminder that we are surrounded and immersed in a mysterious, amazing and wonderfully magical experience called life.
So, once again, thank you for your patronage--you let me do what I love!
