Magic And The Story You Tell

Growing up I was always fascinated with magic. I still remember when my dad showed me my first card trick. I perform it to this day.

These days, it’s quite easy to learn a few tricks to impress your friends. There’s thousands of tutorials online.

But to become a great magician takes work. Because there’s a catch.

Good magicians aren’t remembered because of the cool tricks they do.

They are remembered for the story they tell. They are remembered because of how they make you feel.

Who isn’t inspired by a dove appearing out of thin air? Who isn’t impressed by the mind reader who chose your random card.

We often forget how passionate we are about stories that involve the impossible. The stories that let us dream.

Sure, magic doesn’t actually exist. Except in the story you tell.
