Random thoughts from Sorcerers Safari 2013

  • Mike and Jen Segal are totally awesome and inspiring people!
  • It is tremendous that organizations such as Ellusionist support Sorcerers Safari. (Kids, did you remember to send a quick "thank you" e-mail to them for the generous gift you received?  Do it now!  -- Mom)
  • Justin Flom is a super nice and super talented young man. (Read about his Toronto lecture at the Browser's Den blog)
  • I learned of a disconcerting, non-standard use for Mod Podge.
  • When asked to think of a famous painting, a LOT of people think of "Starry Night"
  • There's more humidity in Haliburton than in Vegas.
  • "Overnight successes" take a lot of work and planning.
  • Lee Asher is such a great teacher even _I_ learned how to produce minor card miracles. #BeginnerCardClass
  • Sometimes you get lucky and are the ONLY one in an elective. #PrivateClassesAreAwesome
  • Steven Kline is the guy you want in the booth during your show!
  • You never know when you might meet a fiction author
  • The health and safety of the children is clearly a priority.
  • Being levitated takes strong neck muscles.
  • Non-magicians aren't always the best choice for volunteers during a show.
  • Some Australians have incredible peripheral vision!

  • Carey Lauder is an incredible photographer.  (See samples of his magic camp from two years back in Vanish magazine.)
  • Chris Mayhew shot some fabulous footage – I can't wait to see this year's camp video!
  • Sorcerers Safari Magic Camp gets better every year!
  • Mike Segal and Mike Toal should be very proud of what they started together over 17 years ago.
  • Sorcerers Safari is full of genuinely nice, caring, talented individuals!

Not at all.  I can't wait until the next time I'm there!
