Decoys!

Ducks, Of Course...

This is weird. I've performed magic as a featured guest on cruise ships and hospitality suites in fancy hotels in Las Vegas. I do magic at holiday parties for corporations. I write about magic for professional magicians. I think about magic a lot.

If you've read any of my blog posts, you know I write about the many ways we are fooled, or how our sense of reality is often under siege by what I call, our hectic, gigaminute life. Much of what I comment on is my take on perception and how a “magician's angle” can relate to everyday happenings in our regular lives.

I've just realized that Duck Decoys are a fake thing. Not that I've NOT realized that they exist. Oh, I know they exist and I know that they are fake. I've just never thought about how magic, our perception of reality and my years of being a magician AND the connection of those two: Duck Decoys and Magic.

Sometimes I surprise even myself.
