Nick Farrell recently posted a very interesting article entitled: Playing at Magic. (Note: I have not read the comments section). In a nutshell it says: you need a teacher, you can’t just learn this by yourself.
Frater.Barrabbas argues against this in his blog post. But personally speaking I think that Nick has a point.
This morning I came across David Griffin’s post which re-affirms that you need a teacher.
I don’t have a teacher. In fact, at least 17 out of the 21 signs that Nick lists for identifying someone who is playing at magic can be applied to me.
So this is me hanging up my wizards hat for a while. Bye for now.
