Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!" - Hunter Thompson

Sadly, I've had to use this twice this past week.

INNER BALANCE AND EVEN OUR VERY EXISTENCE
DEPEND ON IT. ONLY MORALITY IN OUR ACTIONS
CAN GIVE BEAUTY AND DIGNITY FOR LIFE.

"If you know one way of locating a chosen card which has been shuffled back into the deck and fifty ways of revealing that card, to the audience you know fifty tricks."

This is quoted in Lee Earle's First Impressions. It seems that a certain veteran performer once said. His name is unknown.

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.

It's free!
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Magic is about transformation. Transformation is one of the most fundamental symbols and metaphors of magic.
This raises the question of my own transformation and your own transformation. Will there be transformation in our lives?

To steer the barque of this life over the
rough seas of passion without quitting
the helm of rectitude is one of the
highest degrees of perfection to which
human nature may attain.
