Hello,
My name is Sam from the middle of the USA. I am just getting started in magic again, mostly so I can entertain my little grandson. I have forgot how much fun magic can be, and its been a blast taking it up again. I wish there would have been an internet when I was a young as I am a visual learner and books are hard for me to learn from. Anyway, good day to all of you and many well wishes for you.

Sam

Hi Sam

Welcome to TMF!  Your story of returning to magic after a hiatus will resonate with many of our members.  You will find a wealth of knowledge and friendly expert advice here, and a refreshing lack of toxicity - people who just want to show off how smart they are and put other people down don't usually stay here very long.  Take some time to look around the discussion boards, let us know what you are interested in, and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Thank you, I certainly will when I know enough to ask intelligent questions! [biggrin]

Welcome Sam! Hey, keep showing your grandson because he might catch the bug and become a magician someday. Pass the torch.

Hey Sam,

Welcome to TMF. I hope you'll enjoy your time here with us.

I'm getting back to magic after a 15 years hiatus, so you're not alone [wink]

Welcome to the forum Sam!
I've been a student of sleight of hand my entire life.
But I have two young daughters now and I have a whole new appreciation for simple, fun magic of all kinds.

That's exactly what I hope happens. I think magic would be very good for him!

Hello Sam...

I too was away from magic for a bit, although my off-time was only 7 years... but in that 7 years the internet exploded and a happy outcome of that is almost everything I've tried to look up I've found a demo somewhere of it. Sometimes it's nice to see a visual of what you're reading!

Welcome Aboard!

Welcome Sam to The Magician's Forum.....you can find many friends here that are in similar circumstances. You are not alone! I have found it helpful to do searches of the site for the topics I wanted to know more about to see what has been discussed before. Thanks to Rudy, Anthony et al, this is a very friendly professional site with beginners to professionals all interacting together. Check out the past TMF Live sessions (link at the top left). Enjoy!  [wave]

Welcome, Sam. I was away from magic for 37 years, so I can certainly appreciate the experience of the great joy of coming back to it. I hope you really get a lot out of this forum. I think its great.
