Caught up with nothing of importance

Card Fan

My buddy, Dave, popped in with an unexpected friend (who shall remain nameless for his protection) while I was catching up on the last 4-5 episodes of Heroes. I was blown away with how the characters all come together at the end, no pun intended.

Dave’s trying to learn some card magic to take with him when he goes to China this summer with people from his church.

It’s fascinating that while I haven’t really done card magic in at least a year, I can still pick it up and perform. It really is like riding a bicycle! My showmanship needs work, I’m sure. One simple card trick I performed for my anonymous friend still blew him away. If you would’ve seen his face, and you knew the slights, you would’ve erupted in laughter and amazement, like Dave did.

A few years ago, I did a walk around at The Block at Orange. Some friends took turns capturing me on video while I went up to random strangers. Then, after a huge crowd surrounded me on one of my last performances, we got kicked out. I should build up to do that again sometime — it was such a rush!

Anyway, back to the present-day! Most of today was spent watching TV shows I’ve saved up for the last few weeks. Napping felt really good, too.

I would love to say that everything is out of my head and written down in my system, but I’m not sure if that’s true. In any case, I felt I needed this day of nothingness.

How do you feel when you get these days?
