An afternoon of Magic at The Madeira

This weekend, I was given a fantastic opportunity to perform for the residents at The Madeira. Although the weather was gloomy (there was a terrible storm that afternoon), spirits were high and everyone was extremely excited for the events. There were a great many number of game booths where the residents busied themselves with. Armed with my everyday objects, I proceeded with my quest in astonishing the crowd. 

The residents there were extremely pleasant and courteous. The kids and adults were both greatly entertained and amazed by my close-up roving magic. There was a particular moment that made a huge impact on me. 

I was performing for a child of which I pulled an uncountable number of sponge balls from her ears. She was so amazed by it that she decided to call all of her friends (not a small number at all) within the aforementioned vicinity and begged me to do it again for her friends. We ended up laughing at one another and she even wanted me to carry her! It brings me joy to see how magic is able to brighten the day of anyone, especially a kid!

Not only so, magic also allowed me to better the connection between a parent and the child. Magic allows me to create a bridge between the two of them; to allow them to witness something impossible together, thus favouring communications between the child and the parent.

It was a great afternoon performing and I hope that anyone reading this has had a fantastic weekend as well!
