One of the reasons that I really connect with magic is the feeling of wonder I still get when I look at something and absolutely get fooled. It's very similar to the feeling that I used to get as a little kid right before I got to open up my presents at Christmas time. I have been blessed to be able to get that same joy when I get to be a part in passing this experience onto others, and they begin to realize how much of an impact this art form can have. There is nothing like seeing the joy in their face when the "light comes on" for that very first time.
One of the things that I was very blessed to be a part of was being able to collaborate with these same teens to come up with a magic production called "His love ran red". They combined an effect called "Dress Code" and one of Harry Houdini's signature routines, "Metamorphosis", to create a great story illustrating the story of Jesus.
