When covid keeps you IN, let YOUR Inner Child OUT!😉❤ Call a friend or sibling, and talk Silly talk. Dust off an old board game...one you deeply loved as a child. Embrace Your Wonder. Embrace Your Playtime. We all need creative outlets...see the world as Your 'Adult Playground.' "It takes a very long time to become young." -Pablo Picasso. "There is no such thing as an 'adult'. An adult is a COSTUME. It's a mask and mannerism that a kid puts on, in order to make it through LIFE!" - Dick Van Dyke. Times are tough, but SO ARE YOU.❤ Wishing you personally a weekend of joy, alacrity, and MAGIC.😀🎩👍 #Love #Magic #Wonder #Magician #AmazingMisterJ #DavidJolly #RudyTheRedNosedRabbit #BirthdayParty #InnerChild #AdultPlayground #EmbraceYourSilly www.misterj.ca www.amazingmisterj.ca www.halifaxmagician.ca ...

May the 4th Be With YOU! Hilariously, when introducing my Magic Rabbit to Chewbacca, she continually clambered and climbed out of her Magic Hat, excitedly trying to meet her new furry friend!
