Hey all.

Have you guys ever really inspired someone with your magic? I've had this thing happen many times now and I'm surprised. At first I showed one of my friends just a simple card trick and he was amazed, he got into magic straight away. Recently I moved to a new area and showed my cousin who lives a door away from me some tricks, he has also gotten into magic VERY seriously and uses materials of Sadowitz,Daniel Garcia and a few that I teach him, he even can do the pass now pretty well. Another one of my friends was also inspired so much that he learnt the Ascanio Spread from ellusionist, a simple trick and can do the pass not so bad!! Now, today at Uni I showed the strike vanish to one of my friends and made the pen cap appear from my pocket, he was amazed so much, he asked me to show him more and told me to come over to his house sometime and show him some of my tricks and he'll show me some of his.
Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever inspired someone so much that they got into magic? I havent even done anything other than show a simple ROV vanish or strike vanish and yet it has had amazing results, I'm just left speechless whenever my cousin or friend comes over to my house and shows ME a trick using the common sleights.

I think we all were inspired at one time or another.... that's how we got to where we are at Today. For me is was my uncle who inspired me. He was a Full Time working Magician in NYC. As a Kid Growing up in NYC I can remember spending countless Hours watching him Build Illusions in his Basement and Practicing his show.

Today it is my Daughter who I Believe I inspire. When we get done with rehearsal she has to get up and do her show for us. At the age of 8 she does a very nice Cups and Balls routine.

One bit of advice I am going to give you though is to be careful.... Make sure that your friends are inspired and not just curious of how the trick is done. I realize we all started somewhere but that doesn't mean we have to show every Tom, Dick and Harry the secrets to our tricks.

I strongly believe in giving back to magic what magic has given to me. This is why for the past 14 years now I have taught a society of Young Magicians club in Philadelphia with a friends of mine. We average about 15 members each year and I would not even think abiout getting paid to do this. I teach the club twice a month and we put on shows for the community through out the year.

Because I believe in getting youth started in magic, I am also involved with the S.Y.M. youth activities and stage show at the national SAM conventions each year.

I really enjoy being able to inspire a person to not only get involved in magic, but to go about it the right way and with the right ideas in their own mind. 14 years and going strong and I just love seeing these kids grow up and contrinue to perform their magic long after they leave the club. It is a good feeling.

If you're VERY lucky, you'll have a story like this to tell.

But 99% of the time - you'll never find out. You touch people much more than you will ever hear about. How many times in your life has a random, brief, perhaps even anonymous encounter taught or given you something that has stayed with you for a lifetime?

I remember a scene in "Save the Tiger" with Jack Lemmon - an old friend tells him (I paraphrase) "I was on the ferry - we were pulling out as the other boat was pulling in, and there was a girl in a white dress at the railing of the other ferry. I only saw her for a second; she didn't see me at all. It's been 60 years, and not a month has gone by that I didn't think of that girl."

Thanks are due to the guy (whoever he was - probably somebody's "Uncle Bob who does a few tricks") who did a magic show at my church when I was 6 or 7 (that would be half a century ago) - that show has kept coming to mind over the years, and definitely influenced my career choice.

You have left a larger wake than you think, I guarantee. Somewhere, a kid you entertained long ago is a magician now, or has a career where he has to speak in public and figured if you can do it so can he, or something else important to him.

Seeing Kyle and his wife work with SYM'ers in Boston a couple of years ago was very cool.

Giving back the magic behind the magic..that is having creativity, ethics, heart...instead of just magic is important to ourselves and our art.

You are all appreciated for reminding me of some real magic.

Be safe,

Harris

Thanks so much Harris. It is greatly appreciated. Kelly and I really enjoy working with the SYM kids at our local club and at the National convention each year. It is great sharing the magic with them and helping inspire them to create great things.

We will once again be working with the youth activities and the Stars of Tomorrow stage show at this year's convention in Dallas. I hope to see some of you there.
