Does anyone know if he's okay?

I've never met the man, or even communicated with him via posting, but he struck me as a serious performer who was going through some heavy stuff. The tone of some of his posts resonated with me, so I was wondering if anyone knew how he was doing.

It's sad to report, that I have it on solid authority that Devious is gone.

No...wait...that was Jimmy Talksalot...no...that was incorrect as well.

I just can't keep anything straight...who's got the program?

All kidding aside, he did have some interesting posts and got folks talking.

Hope he's back soon...

I don't know why he is gone. But the window that pops up when you try to open his profile reads "This member's profile is currently unavailable." Usually a member is banned when that window appears. Maybe he was banned for what he mentioned about Johnathon: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......forum=62 I don't know, just guessing.

I too think he was banned, not sure why but there was a lot of comments about Adam grace magic who has also disappeared.

I'm glad. Thank you Mario.

As far as what went on just before he left, he made a mistake. Jimmy seemed to take his "demise" better than a lot of folks here did.

I think that only those who've never made a mistake, or spoke too quickly, should make negative comments.

Alive, well and focusing his energies elsewhere.
It can be tough to face the daily snarking and trollish behaviors of some of the members here when your world has fallen apart around you.

But hey, it's easier to tear someone down over the anominimity of the internet than it is to act like a human being and show a little compassion, eh?

Agreed.

At first I noticed his hyper-posting, both here and on the MagicJoint, and I thought he's under pressure. Then I found out how his whole life was destroyed and it became clear. Even the strongest among us would have been brought to their knees by what he went through. That didn't stop some from tearing into him for making a mistake though.

Glass houses and like that, as far as I'm concerned.

I'm glad somebody else mentioned that...every time I see the candle out of the corner of my eye I do a double take...wondering how did a red ______ get on the website...

Well said Ekuth! I know you guys are friend and I am glad he is doing good. I miss his encouragement, something a lot of people here don't seem to have.

His user name was banned back in July this year, but I've seen a post or 4 or 5 that makes me think he's still among us.

Does devious have a Facebook account or anything like that? I rarely communicate with anyone through forums, but would like to get ahold of him.

Friends, I thank anyone whom I've ever interacated with in the past.
I've been re-writing my approach to magic and my life! I'm still not
in a completely stable environment or where I want to be in life, but
sharing magic with others has always re-centered me in the worlde.

Looking back on all of the folks I've personally lost and entertainers
whom have died recently, you can ask yourself, "Whose going to care
about the things they were passionate about or even despised?"

"No one will!" No one is walking behind us with a clipboard keeping
tabs on all of our likes and also those whom have wronged us.


Folks might care for a little while as I've tried to but in the
end, life goes on without us and the only thing that matters is
whether or not you will regret not enjoying your life more along
the way to our certain demise. Regrets will also play a major role
in how peaceful you are when you decide to close your eyes for the
very last time.

Here is what came to me in a sweatlodge as I wandered in the Northern
Arizona Desert near Tuba City with only a backpack and a few bucks.

I was walking along the beach and I stopped to look at a very unusual
rock formation of parallel lines and circles. I was touchhing them
and I asked, "Hmmmm, I wonder why there are straight lines in these
rocks?"

A pleasant voice behind me said,
"Because crooked ones take longer to make."

I then asked, "Why are we here then old man?"

"Kid you were sent here on vacation because someone else doesn't
have time for one just yet. Your job is to come here, enjoy it as much
as you can without being scared, then go Home and tell them all about
it just like the bees do!"


The answer although profound didn't come as a surprise to me.
It felt like something I already knew. I looked down at the sand
stuck in my toes as if inconvenienced which made me laugh, I then
looked up and he was gone.

The elders told me that the fact that I saw another live creature
in this vision speaks to the nature of my own journey here that I
have chosen to walk.

With respect from a kid who begs forgiveness from anyone whom he has
ever wronged, A bee who likes to stop on all the pretty flowers as
he makes his way. A busy bee!
