It may be a cliche of some sort but as we closely approach the holiday season it is time for all of us to try and pause from the hectic pace of life and be thankful for what we have rather than what we have not.
Sure we humans are always striving for better times. But we too often are fixated on noticing and perhaps being envious of what others have. So many of us have so much relative to so many others and most assuredly relative to much of the rest of the world.
And as it has been said millions of times before, if we do not have our health then we truly have nothing.
As for me I am very fortunate and blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life.
And though the brick and mortar magic shops are facing a tough road ahead it is important that all magic shopkeepers step back and realize that other retail and non-retail industries are facing a tough/challenging road ahead too as the Internet will continue to change the landscape of interaction between all humans and private and non-private industry.
Adam Smith's Invisible Hand has never been so omnipotent.
In fact Smith's Invisible Hand may be best sleight of hand concept of all time; you don't really see it but it is there working most of the time very well.
Until Next Time,
