I started doing magic when I was six years old (thank you Adams), which was almost 50 years ago now. Wow, I can't believe I just admitted that to the world. I read every book I could find in the library. I would beg my mom to take me downtown to the magic shop. My poor relatives, my words were always take a card any card, I can see their eyes rolling even now. In high school I bought another guys magic that he wanted to get rid of. I also got to work at a mall store that sold magic as of magician. Since I love kids so much I was always doing birthday parties. I also invented a few sleights and routines of my own. As having the family at a young age can really change your priorities, Magic drifted off to never-land. I became a follower of Christ, no judging from here since He is really came to explain about a loving God (see John 3:17, I apologize I don't mean to preach). I started doing magic again as a tool to show the mysteries of God, and created a lot of good patter for children. I apologize for my life's history. and TMI. Through it all I kept my hands busy with a little magic here a magic there, hoping to one day be a member of the Magic Castle. I've been blessed to be there a few times with a member and even performed some my my own slights I want to side tables. I sustained a spinal cord injury 4 1/2 years ago which, among other things, destroyed my powers of prestidigitation and waiting for surgey number four. Due to the injury, my hands have lost their muscle memory and I have found myself on a long road to retraining them. My house also flooded and destroyed some of the magic that I can't replace or afford to replace if I can find it. My doctors said to find something that I was passionate enough about to work through the pain to help restore spirit, soul, and body. While looking for some close-up magic any illusions I found the Magic Café. The desire to join the Magic Castle, I.B.M., and S.A.M., and be around, and learn from, other magicians. I want to further my conjuring cognitive processes so I'm looking for books, e-books, or anything. I'm now in the Pasadena area and would like to know of any magic organizations in the area. I apologize for the length of this post and look forward to sharing, learning, and buying/trading/selling with all of you. Not only is Laughter the best medicine, so is Magic. Smile

G'day MsteveM
Welcome to the Café - that was not that long mate - but it was one serious paragraph lol.
I do hope that your renewed involvement in and passionate pursuit of magic aids in your recovery.

Welcome MsteveM,

You have a great positive attitude.

My I suggest that you add some of the magic to be found in the "Shuffled not Stirred" forum.

I agree that Magic is good physical therapy and you are not the only one here using it.

Wishing you wonderful outcomes!

Hello MsteveM,

Good to have you here. This old white-haired magician welcomes the company.

Magic is good medicine. There are times when this old cowboy appreciates it. The Man upstairs takes good care of us.

Perhaps we can share something: Plenty of people believe in Miracles, We rely on them!
