At present, I do not get to this site often. That being said, I much prefer sites like this to facebook because here we can discuss, chat and get into stuff where facebook is just surface hellos and information.

A meeting place like this is important to those of us who live alone in this community and have no one to discuss magic and meaning with, like myself. It would be a loss to the network to see you go.

Cheers.

Hello David and new brothers and sisters ;)
Yes, I'm the new guy here, but not to magic. That started in the 70's, took time off and am reinventing myself.
Was a full time performer/magician last year after hanging up the computer guy thing of 20 + years to follow my dream as an actor. So far so good.
I hope to share some good conversations and infuse a little of myself into this board. To encourage everyone to believe.
Nice to meet everyone. There seems to be lots to get caught up on. Thanks for opening the doors for me.
It's important to keep this forum going, there are not too many like it and FB has run its course for a lot of people.
Too many highlight reels and everyone comparing themselves to it, thats not the art of conversation. This is.....

Good to be back. Long journey in the last few years but I have found my stride and have been enjoying bringing my own style of theatrical mentalism to the stage. Lately, I have been exploring classic parlour magic and mixing it with bizarre themes.

Life has taken me in different directions. I opened a new business, sold all my haunted house props, packed away my magic stuff, and set myself to the long hours of growing a Jiu Jitsu academy. It was easiest for me, at that time, to withdraw completely. Too many ideas here, competing for my time and attention. So, it has been a very long time since I have posted, or even visited here.

Recently, I began to miss it. I started talking to some old friends from the magic community. This week, I was asked if I would produce/perform a Halloween show at a local theater. I have not given them an answer yet, but it has gotten me back to really thinking about things magical. That, of course, led me back here.

As I have contributed very little to the site in recent days, I don't really feel like I have a right to have any say at all in its future. That said, I found it very comforting that when I knocked, the door was still open.
