A little more inspiration

As an editor, I come from two worlds: the world of the writer, and the world of the magician. In the guidelines for Mountain Magic, I say that the magic in the story or poem can either be supernatural or performance magic. But what's the difference. really?

Below is a documentary about magician Eugene Burger, one of my teachers and a powerful inspiration of mine. When I first watched it, it pleased me to see many good friends included in the documentary. Most people have an idea what magic is, but very few know its meaning and history. This documentary will make that clearer, will aid you as a writer create magic in this and other stories, and will introduce you to one of my great heroes.

  1. Thank you for posting this movie about Mr. Burger. It doesn't give just food for thought, but a whole smorgasboard.
