School and life...

...have gotten in the way of me keeping a regular posting schedule.  I'd rather continue to live life then write about past experiences (call me crazy).

Once I returned home from camp I had less than a week to prepare for school.  I made the most of it, and what was left of my summer 'freedom', by seeing friends, reading books, watching movies, and getting in as much basketball as my injured knee would allow.

But you don't care about any of that.  You want to know what's happening with this blog.

A friend of mine had a brilliant suggestion- simply scan my notebook into my computer and post it.  And that's exactly what I'm going to do.  It means I won't be able to edit it for spelling or grammar but lets be honest- I've been doing a craptacular job of that anyway.  So, this weekend I'm going to scan in as much as I can and post several days all at once.  You'll get the feel of the journal, and all it's messiness, and I won't have to worry about keeping a posting schedule.

Back from Camp!

Last night I returned home from being an instructor at Sorcerers Safari, Canada's only magic camp.  Every year, for the past 9 years, I've attended SS and every year its one of the highlights of my magic experience.  The kids are passionate and eager (some of them are downright awesome) and the staff and special guests are people I'm lucky enough to call my friends.  Superstars of the magic world, world champions, authors, producers and people who have contributed in every aspect to the art come together to help the next generation learn and develop, and it's wonderful thing to behold!

The special guests this year included Dan and Dave Buck, Wayne Houchin, Aaron Fisher, Lee Asher, Shawn Farquhar, Greg Frewin and Eric Leclerc!  As you can tell from clicking any of the links- these guys are amazing magicians and a blast to hang out with!

Showing off for the ladies... alright, it was magic camp- showing off for the lady.

As great as magic camp was though its nice to be home.  I promise the next update is coming soon.
