Yianni Stamas Speaks About One of the World’s Greatest Magicians

Magician Heroes

Here at WebDesignMagician.com we recognize magic heroes such as magicians who are blind. The reason today January 4th is especially important in this regard is because this date has has officially become known as World Braille Day. The day was named after the inventor in the 1800s of Braille named Louis Braille. January 4th is Louis Braille’s birthday.

Magic is Blessed

Magic is blessed with fine magical talents who are legally blind such as the amazing magician Richard Turner who is a “Card Mechanic,” a term used by magicians which means you are a master of sleight of hand with cards.

Turner as been praised by some of the legends of magic, such as Dai Vernon who is quoted as saying:

“Having seen countless numbers of card experts execute for over eighty years, I consider Richard Turner to be by far the most skillful. He performs the most difficult moves with the greatest ease. I doubt if anyone can equal him.”

Get Out and Vote

Opposite Ends

Web Design Magician is voting tomorrow, are you? Very important to vote just 24 hours or so from now. We are a country divided. Hopefully if we all vote our country will come together more. It is quite strange how there are totally different points of view at opposite ends of the spectrum.

Portraying the Other

Personally I watch both CNN and Fox. Both at opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to news and updates. What’s interesting, while at the same time disturbing, is that both “sides” seems to portray the other in a manner that is utilized by both.

Make “V’ Your Mission Tomorrow

They both have similar strategies to discredit the other. Sadly, voting could lead to more issues. Change of some kind is coming soon and we pray that this transformation is a good one for all. Get out and vote!

Developing New Mission and Vision

Web Design Magician is proud to be a part of the over 50 websites of the Blog Coalition, and is totally supportive of the process of figuring out the workings of an awards show.

Update on Updates

If you have been following the Platinum PIAs then you know that this popular awards show shut down after a decade of annual success and inspired another awards show to take its place which is soon to be announced. At Web Design Magician we are looking forward to this announcement because many of the accounts we have depend on referrals from the unnamed website that is debuting soon. There was a premier a few months ago but they have ceased from doing updates.

Blog Coalition

Change isn’t easy, and if you’re anything like us then you have a million ideas for every new scenario. Such is the case of the new website coming. We were asked for our opinion just as they did with the rest of the over 50 websites that are participants in the Blog Coalition.

New Mission and Vision

So we are sitting on our hands, resisting calling the mission revamp blog. It isn’t easy. I guess we all want to put in our 2 cents in the development of a new mission and vision.

 

Inspiration

Role Models

Those of us who grew up not having positive role models need to seek this out somewhere else. Design can be a big one, especially for those of us who design websites. Another important means of bringing positivity into your life can be by collecting quotes that are meaningful to us and therefore can help us remain on the right path in terms of mind, body and spirit. Yianni Stamas on his website today had a good one from Albert Einstein:

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”

Words to live by. This is not saying that you shouldn’t pursue doing well in the “physical” world, but I’ve learned over the years that you should keep in focus the things that matter most.

Obsessed or Passionate?

Inspiration

When it comes to art and technology there can be a fine line between being obsessed or merely passionate. You have to be committed to what you are doing and have your imagination full throttle. So what is this state exactly? Being inspired?

Trust

It’s kind of crazy what the Blog Coalition is trying to do which is to organize the art of inspiration among a collective of people. This is not always easy, especially since some of the people involved are met online. Who are they really? Who can you trust?

Have Guard Up

All you really have in the end are your instincts. The same part of you who is thorough when it comes to online security, has to assess the situation from that perspective. Initially when someone contacts you, you have to have your guard up because you have a cause and this person may not be alligned with it. What is this? Obsession or passion. You decide.
