Had two of the nicest men come by The Magic Emporium (where I work in Tampa,FL) today:
one is a regular who buys animal balloons and easy tricks to learn/perform (he's 60-something) as a way as reaching out to kids in the ghetto of Brandenton,FL;
the other was a visitor from Trinidad, whose objective was to find tricks that could be performed in a setting for sick kids.
Both of these gentlemen had the same mindset: the most rewarding thing is to see a child smile, take delight in something, and temporarily take their mind off their situation. I applaud these men; there is truly nothing more rewarding to see a child smile.
Thanks Chip & Wayne for reminding us all of what magic truly is.
