Celebrating Friendship

“It is not so much our friends’ help that helps us as the confident knowledge that they will help us.”  — Epicurus

Dear Friends:

In today’s Muse, we celebrate our friends and collaborators – and we have LOTS of news to share while we do it!

We are happy to report that Jeff is off to the U.K. this week, for his only visit there this year!  While there, he will first be appearing, and lecturing and conducting a workshop at Noel Britton’s “International Festival of Magic.”  Established by the late Ron MacMillan over 40 years ago, it is still affectionately known as “Ron’s day”. The convention is now run by Ron’s family and close friends. Not to be missed – and you can learn more here: http://www.internationalmagic.com/pages/convention.html

“I get by with a little help from my friends.” — John Lennon

John Lennon had it right. We all depend on our friends to get along. They are the real magic that can save lives!

A few years back, my entire show was stolen in Boston. My friend and magician David Oliver saved my show! He helped me rebuild my show in just 2 days to meet my show commitments. David is a wonderful magician and an amazing person. Now, David has a serious health challenge from exposure to doves! Yes, he developed a rare lung disease and needs to have both lungs replaced!  Here is the positive news… Magicians from all over are helping David raise funds for his condition.  Read about the David Oliver fundraiser and how you can help him get by.

“When a friend is in trouble, don’t annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.” — Edgar Watson Howe

That’s all the news for now.  We hope you’ll be giving thanks for your friends over the coming holiday… just a we give thanks for all of you!
