Good Narrative Principles

Character Flash: Never Repeat Never Surrender


When our daughter was born, I became lost in a sea of love. Tracing her dimples, the fine arc of her eyebrows, the slight asymmetry between her two eyes, marked her as uniquely herself. While holding her for the first time, I decided that to honor her, I will contribute my own unique trick to the proud pantheon of magic. As magic shows were losing their hold on the culture, I had many, many hours and free days to devote to this singular pursuit. I tried my hand at levitation, pulling rabbits out of hats and finally settled on cards as it was budget friendly.  My plan is to perform my card trick which I’m calling “Uniquely You” for the first time at the party celebrating her college graduation.  Sure, it took longer than I thought it would. But…hey, someday, if I play my cards right, “Uniquely You” will be right up there with “Amazing Aces.”
