Topic: Longtime lurker...

Hello everyone, I decided to finally come crawling out of the woodwork and get involved in the board. This forum has been very helpful over the past months and I decided it was time to actually create a name and join in the discussion!
This is a great community, everyone seems to respect one another, and I have never seen a troll or flame war here at all.

I have been interested in magic for years, but instead of trying to learn, I convinced myself it would be far outside of my grasp. What a mistake! When I finally decided to give it a go last year, I was amazed at how I was able to follow and learn the sleights and flourishes from a dvd I bought. I have long lamented the fact that I have no "talent" for anything in particular, and have often wished for something that could be "just mine" that I could do well. With magic, I feel I have finally found it. I am still very much a beginner, but when I practice something for a few weeks or a month, then one day I almost fool myself in front of the mirror, it's pretty exciting! If only I had started at age twenty instead of thirty!

I mostly do cards, but I just picked up some mentalism dvd's of Richard Osterland and am pretty floored by them.

Hi there,

Welcome to the Magic Café. I think you’ll have a lot of fun in here. The topic boards and the members are real interesting and helpful. It covers just about any interest in the art and even the sideline interests. Have you been doing magic long? What type of magic are you interested in?
Have fun,
