Seeing Masters of their craft at work is always an inspiration. They provide us with encouragement to seek new opportunities in our own field, and to never settle for "good enough" for too long when "better," "best," and "Great" are just around the corner, over the horizon, and on the next mountain.
I have had the privilege of seeing The Amazing Jonathan work his craft a number of times, and it is always a Joy. This past weekend at Foxwoods was no different. His opening act was a comedian who decided when he was 12 years old that he wanted to pursue comedy, after sitting in the audience of one of The Amazing Jonathan's performances. Beyond deciding, he took ACTION. He sought the guidance of mentors, worthy guides who could show him the way. The most important mentor has been and continues to be the same comedian who inspired him to pursue that path all those years ago. May we all continue to be inspired by such Masters.
