I don't know about you...but July was jam-packed! It was so busy that I started thinking back to when I was a child and I would long for summer vacation to relax and enjoy some time off. Nowadays with the responsibilities of everyday life summer is VERY different!
But it wasn’t all work and no play. On July 1 I climbed Mount Washington! It was by far the most ambitious hike I had ever done, and the views made everything worthwhile. About halfway up I said to myself that this was actually quite an easy hike! But as I neared the top and climbed into the rocky clouds, I realized how soon I was to judge. Then, once you’re at the top and you’re exhausted, you still have to make your way down! I’ll definitely be doing the hike again one day, but for now I’ll stick the leisure hikes for a while. To that end I did a small hike up Mount Chocorua in New Hampshire on July 15. Even more breathtaking views!
On July 7 I was back the River Garden, on July 8 I was on Martha’s Vineyard performing motivational street magic for Tisbury’s annual celebration. This was my fourth year at the fair and it’s always a joy to share my magic with the families on the island. On July 12 I was back in the studio filming episode 4 of Positivity Now, and on July 19 and 27 I was at shared by interactive comedy magic with the students at Camp Stanica in Bondsville, MA. Also on July 27 I presented my motivational program Engage Your Magic for the Vermont Drivers Ed Summit in Rutland, VT, and the following day on July 28 I was in Methuen, MA presenting to the students of Rangers Camp. On top of all of this I taught four week-long courses at Westfield State University’s College for Kids program with my magic workshops and myth writing classes.
August settles down a little, but with more opportunities to add value to others there’s certainly little time to sit back. Here’s to what’s next!
P.S. For many, September is a month of renewal, a fresh start coming out of summer.
