“It’s impossible,” said pride.
“It’s risky,” said experience.
“It’s pointless,” said reason.
“Give it a try,” whispered the heart.
Hey, it’s Jeff McBride here in Las Vegas, writing you from the House of Mystery. I love quotes that bring me inspiration and motivate me to take on new challenges. When I look back on some of the recent projects that we’ve been creating here at the Magic and Mystery School, I realize how much incredible help I have, and how grateful I am for the team. You can meet many of them on our new web-shows. You can even interact with us online now. You’ll quickly see why I feel so blessed, to have these people in my life. Each month, we take turns writing you, sharing our experiences and our magic. Here’s a bit of what’s going on for me these days.

A Diamond Found at Wonderground!
When you visit the WONDERGROUND, you will meet one of the sparkling characters of Las Vegas: Christian Diamond. He is easy to spot; he is, by far, the best-dressed person in the room… always! Diamond is known as “the Gem of Sin City,” and has been one of the Wonderground players since the very beginning. He helps many performers in Las Vegas to create their dream shows. I’ve found Mr. Diamond’s advice and expertise to be a great addition to our productions. You can learn more about the mysterious Mr. Diamond here: http://www.christiandiamond.com/
