Every February sees the largest magic convention in the world take place in Blackpool UK. 3000 or so magicians descend upon the town for a long weekend of fun and geeking out the only way we magicians know... by buying loads of magic and talking secretively about secrets!
It was early hours of the morning on Friday night when I had a tap on the shoulder, turned around and a lovely young lady called Emma (now known as Ava Beaux!) was stood in front of me saying hello. It took me a couple of moments to realise that I had met this young lady before, it was at a gig I had performed at years ago!
I was performing at a party ages ago and I was told that there was someone who would love to spend a couple of moments with me as they knew a little bit of magic and wanted to learn more. I sat down at the end of the gig with Emma and went through some stuff, she showed me what she had been working on and I showed her some stuff. Little did I know how much that time I had spent with Emma would help change her. Emma is now Ava Beaux Professional Magician!!!
I am so happy that she came up to me and spoke to me, it truly meant a lot, probably the best thing that happened that weekend to me (and I saw a lot of cool things!). To know that I had a little something to do with her going for it and becoming a professional magician, is an honour. It truly is an amazing thing, magic. It really has the potential to change peoples lives and give people memories that last an entire lifetime. I couldn't be happier with what I do for a job!
They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.
