New Look for Milwaukee Magician
I've been working on a new website. It's definitely a work-in-progress, but I thought I'd open it up to the general public. If you are looking for magicians in Milwaukee, then take a look at the site. If you would just like to critique my work, feel free to drop me a line.

Several years ago, prior to going full-time as a magician, I worked as a technical writer. As part of that position, I designed and maintained a couple websites at a large company in Milwaukee. My skills as a website designer are a bit out of date. So, in my spare time, I've been attempting to learn more in this area. It would seem that my hobby has become my career, and my career has become my hobby.

Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving day is almost here. It's a day that sort of gets lost in the rush toward Christmas and all the shopping, hussle and bussle. So I would like to encourage you to, along with me,  take a little time and consider all that you have to be thankful for. It's been a full year. Some things have gone my way. Some things haven't. I've had some disappointments...and some triumphs.

If  I'm to be honest with myself, I'd rather not go through the 'down' times. But it is also those very times that provide the perspective that brings me true thanks. In fact, that's what Thanksgiving is about. Consider that first Thanksgiving at Plymouth. It had been a long, hard 10 months getting that colony established. Months filled with struggle and no-doubt  some fear. That's why they gave thanks when the harvest came in. They had some perspective.

Consider also that first proclamation for a National day of thanks from Abraham Lincoln. The country was in the midst of a civil war. However, there was hope. That is what that proclamation was about.
