Welcome to October’s “Mysteries of the Mind” monthly newsletter!

Vlogs, podcasts, TED + fantasy shoes & hair!

Life isn’t about the money we make, the things we accumulate or even the awards displayed on our shelf. Life is about the people who come into our sphere and teach us how to reflect on time, self, meaning and kindness towards others.

Thank you for being my friend.

It’s been a very good month so far. Beyond headlining at Magic in the Rockies in Colorado and at the Suncoast Casino in Las Vegas – I have been booked for 3 future conventions, in talks with 2 Vegas casinos and have made a lot of fun media appearances.

Below is a sampling of some of my favorites from the last 30 days.

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
– Colin Powell

I must come forward and honestly admit that I have never related to the overwhelming love that some have for shoes. As a child, it was strange to me that my mother had a small closet devoted to them. As an adult, most of the women that I have dated have been curators of personal shoe galleries. I have even known a few men who have been bit by the shoe-collecting bug. However, for the first time, I have found a ladies shoe designer whose creations I find artistic and fun. And I fully approve of any woman willing to wear these out in public. Enjoy!
