What's Your Legacy?

A Lesson From Grief
It was night when I arrived, but even in the darkness I recognized the house—as if I had been there before.  I knew I was in the right place when I caught a glimpse of Stephanie and a couple other folks coming out of the house. I didn’t want her to see me just yet—in…

3 Steps For Making Meaningful Connections

One of my favorite moments as a magician happened during the spring of 2009.  I was contracted to tour all the senior centers in Springfield, MA with my magic act and when I showed up to one of the locations one afternoon I was met with a most unfortunate circumstance. Everyone was playing bingo.


 If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a performer it’s that no one…

How To Turn Ideas Into Reality

We all have an idea, a dream, or a goal that we’d like to accomplish, but for many these ideas, dreams, and goals remain visionless thoughts never to see the light of day. The reason for this is explained by Martin Luther King Jr.:…

How To Overcome Adversity...Before It Even Arrives!

When I was fourteen years old I was invited to perform a magic act at my high school talent show.  This was my first opportunity to perform in front of the entire school and I was eager to impress them, so I created a magic demonstration that was sure to fit the bill.  It was my greatest creation up until that point, a piece…

What Does It Take To Be Grand?

Scientists estimate that it took 17 million of years for the Grand Canyon to become the wonder that we know it as today. 17 million years! Can you imagine that?! It took 17 million years for this “Wonder of the World” to be endowed with the title “Grand.” Such a large number is, for me, inspiring, because it allows me to go…

The Two Boxes

God's Boxes


I have in my hands two boxes,

Which God gave me to hold.

He said, "Put all your sorrows in the black box,

And all your joys in the gold."


I heeded His words, and in the two boxes,

Both my joys and sorrows I stored.

But though the gold became heavier each…

What would happen to the world?

Harry Chapin routinely performed charity concerts, giving his money away to rebuild this place or that; feeding the hungry here and the hungry there.  But Harry's social causes at times caused friction among his band members.  He donated a third of his paid concerts to charity, often performing alone with his guitar to reduce costs.


After Harry's death, his wife Sandy said, "Harry was supporting 17 relatives, 14 associations, seven foundations and 82 charities. Harry wasn't…

Last week at this time

Here's a message I received in an email this morning. I found it interesting and I thought you might too.






Just think, last week at this time we were all beginning to prep for hurricane Irene. Here we are, one week later and many of us came through unscathed. Amazing. However, we are now aware of the utter destruction to the property of friends or family here in Massachusetts, Vermont, New Jersey, and numerous other areas. I have…

Judging Success


Today I received an email from Jeff McBride.  It contained a message from Jordan Wright, a talented artist, both as magical performer and filmmaker.


Judging Success

How do you judge yourself and your success? Do you look at your career and see completion or do you see room for growth? Many magicians might choose to measure their success by how many shows they have done. Others might choose to measure only by the amount of money they make. The…

It doesn't matter what I do

It doesn’t matter what I do so long as I do it.


Seek first the Kingdom of God.  Then all prayers will be answered.


Seek the inner, rather than the outer.  Seek first to love and understand.  What matters now and forever is the spirit.  What matters now is Life and that I do it as my soul wills.


I’ve natural abilities that are to serve this mission in Life.


To honor God and all that is I must use my talents, sharing them with…

“It is a magnificent feeling to recognize the unity of complex phenomena which appear to be things quite apart from the direct visible truth.” – Albert Einstein


The wall calendar of my high school sophomore Biology class had that above quote from Einstein printed on it.


I had no idea what the heck it was supposed to mean.


At the end of the school year I asked my teacher, Mrs. Higney, if I could have the…

The Art of Not Doing

The Art of Not Doing

I forget where I first heard about this concept. It was probably a Dalia Lama idea from one of his books or perhaps I found it in a Carlos Castaneda book. At first I didn’t understand it.

How can we do something that is a “not doing?” But just the other day the

answer was revealed to…
