Greetings Brothers,

In late August I headed out tp the Burning Man festival. (Mcbride wrote about it in Magic Magazine earlier this year.) I was headed out to perform some of my new magic routines, make some contacts, trade stories with Jeff, party hard, and to strengthen my personal magic by searching for miracle.

I got stuck at the airport for 6 hours while waiting for my friend to arrive. I met another man headed to the Burning Man. A conversation insued.

I would like to point out as a side note my belief that being a talented conversationalist is one of the most important attributes an effective bizarrest should have. Conversation is one of the most powerful ways to start off the magic process and lure people into a state of mind where they become ready to see magic.

So I talked to this gentleman, I performed a little finger ring effect, and talked to him about my belief of the nature of magic, the magic of the Burning Man....and what not. He seemed very touched.

I received this email - it was about three pages long, but the opening paragraph that I will post here shows you the over riding emotion.

Hey Sensei Strange,
What's going on man? Sean here...airport guy...burningman...ringin' any bells Smile Hope things are going well.
Just wanted to drop you a line, say hey, and talk...
First off, can't remember if I brought this up when I stumbled across your camp on Saturday, but here goes... So do you remember when we were sitting at the airport and you asked me if I'd seen any "miracles"? To this I said no, or some semblance there of. Well, think I'd like to change my answer on that...
The last thing I expected heading out there was to have-for lack of a better term-an awakening, but that's sorta what happened. I don't know, you probably understand what I'm saying (per the conversation about the "magic" out there and what-not) but it was like my eyes were open up to the miracles. As I began to see this, I postulated these miracles most likely occur all the time, but we're running to fast to see 'em. Time and time again I saw intentions become tangible reality. And not just mine-it was repeated time and again by others telling tales of their experience.
I also figure that, as you mentioned, that place and that concentration of people-the raw energy-some how allow these miracles to happen much easier or quicker. Regardless, the trip was magic. I'm glad I started it off talking to you at Reno International Airport, especially seeing how prophetic our conversation was.

Mission Accomplished.

Walk In Peace,

Sensei Strange
