Magic turns seniors into kids again! So much laughter today at Annapolis Royal Nursing Home. A lady kindly said: "You brought so much sunshine to my day", and one gentleman (in his 90s) even asked me: "Can you make The Rockettes appear?" (!!) ... See MoreSee Less

You'll be pleased to know MICHAEL J. FOX is very friendly, and funny, in person! (He asked if I was going to pull a rabbit out of my hat, and also said that he loves magic) Who are YOUR Greatest Canadian Heroes? We have so many here: artists, athletes, and activists, among our unsung (yet equally awesome) everyday heroes. But what makes a hero? A common trait, from Terry Fox, to Clara Hughes, to Rick Hansen, seems to be overcoming some form of adversity, and also giving back. As you know, our Back to the Future star didn't fold when Parkinson's filled his future. Instead, he started the Fox Foundation, wrote amazing books (all recommended!), and became an advocate. Seeing him live, he said he actually got more JOY from bringing hope to those dealing with Parkinson's then he ever got from all his acting! Amazing. His supportive wife of 30 years (!), Tracy Pollan, is equally a hero- showing that we all need others, and no one does anything alone. What an inspiration to rise above challenges; to stir your own inner hero. As Doc Brown said in the movie: "The Future is whatever you make it! So make it a good one!" An honour to meet a lifelong inspiration, and wishing you personally a day filled with your own world-changing heroism! Heroes are MAGIC! :) ... See MoreSee Less

The Amazing Mr. J - Magician & Entertainer

What's your best day ever? Sometimes the smallest words can give it to you, like after this show, when a six year old child ran up asking how he could learn to do magic himself. After telling him that yes, he could do it by reading lots of books, and practicing every day, he joyfully beamed: "Oh yeah! I'm gonna do it!!" (So great. Can't wait to watch his show someday). Not sure if my words had any influence on him, but his youthful excitement certainly encouraged me. A reminder that we all have the gift of giving encouragement. This day was complete after coming home to this kind e-mail: "Thank you for your show at The Beaver Bank Kinsac Community Center today. Our son Zachary (pictured with the black hat on) was enthralled from start to finish, as were all of the children. I wouldn’t have thought that many kids could make as much noise as they did! They loved every minute!" -Jen Saunders, Beaver Bank, NS (Wow. Personal best day ever?) :) ... See MoreSee Less

Y'know, most folks enjoy receiving a 'Mr. J balloon tribute'...though this time it got me a giant choke from WWE's 7 foot tall 'BIG SHOW!' Luckily, I survived to give it to a super surprised, happy little kid afterwards. #TheBigShow #magic #balloonart #happychildren ... See MoreSee Less
