Hey all. I got in yesterday evening from the debate in Springfield. It went well. I think I won, but so does every debater, right? Anyway, the Baptist Student Union told me they’d upload it to youtube and as soon as they do I’ll post it here.
So I woke up this morning and started rehearsing my talk for the Humanist Community of Central Ohio that I’m giving today (all this speaking is why content has been light the last couple of days) and I just had a thought. When practicing to become a magician it’s a common understanding that you are supposed to practice in the mirror until it looks like magic to you. With writing and public speaking, it has always been my goal to re-write and practice in the mirror until I am moved by my own words. When it appears as magic to me, I think, it will look like magic to others.
That’s when it’s magic.
