The Amazing
   Mr. J ON

Y'know, these comments and pictures made my whole year...and it's only January! Sent by Terra Michelle, after her daughter's birthday this weekend in Dartmouth: "Wonderful time today. Avery is still walking on a magic cloud and I have heard from several other parents, who said that it has been such a great day that their children are even now still playing elaborate imaginative games about being 'Mister J', or their own Magic persona with their wands and hats. I have never seen Avery so comfortable in any performance type setting, and have to say that based on today's confidence building show with you, she will likely be forever gracing stages with her brilliant smile, rather than worry. We couldn't be happier. You're a pleasure to deal with, and an awesome performer- thanks so much!!" ... See MoreSee Less

Sorry to report the sudden passing today of another magic friend, Baby J the rabbit. (Maybe she wanted to join my late long-lived dove, from earlier this month?) Baby J had an exciting December, performing in front of 300+ adults at Mount Saint Vincent University, 1000s of children's birthdays over the years (maybe yours?) all across Canada (from Newfoundland to the Yukon!), entertained fiddling superstar Natalie MacMaster & her kids, and she brought so much joy during her final show just days ago...for a little boy with cancer. It's been a heartbreaking month. Luckily, some light today, as I just adopted a new bunny! As with all life, the show most go on! So, please help me welcome Mr. J's new sidekick...introducing: 'OREO!' Here's a sneak peek for you, plus a look back at the wonderful little life of Baby J. Happy New Year, Magic Friends! ...

Happy Birthday, STAN LEE! Beyond his characters, my main reason for being a fan is his unflappable optimism. We all need more joy and kindness. It helped 'The Man' reach 95 years! "Entertainment is one of the most important things in people's lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end. I feel if you're able to entertain people, you're doing a good thing." -STAN LEE ...

You know, they say white doves live about 7-8 years...my late magic friend lasted over 15! It's been a sad goodbye these last few days, but at least I got to hold her during her final hours, playing soft music and making her comfortable. Like dogs and cats, birds really do have personality! Imagine this- she's performed over 3200 shows across Canada (maybe in your home?). She gave wonder and joy to tens of thousands of children and adults. She's also been on CBC's Dragons' Den, met many celebrities, and even flew atop the head of the real-life Dr. Patch Adams! (She stayed there on his long blue hair, contentedly, for 20 minutes...while Patch continued to talk with me, unfazed by it all!) Though there have been others, she was my first, and best, dove. She first performed in Brookfield, NS in September 2002. Bibbish, aka 'Rosy', led a really neat life...sweet and silly, a true magic friend. Love her, and miss her. "It was a little life, but no less important in the world..." (Thank you for those words, Adrienne). Bye bye, Bibbish...hope she brought some joy to you, too. :) ... See MoreSee Less
