A magician, like a blogger, performs for a specific group of people, who look forward to the show.
He tells a story that matches the audience. He doesn't try to persuade them that they don't know enough about his art or teach them a lesson. He makes the show easy to enjoy.
He creates an illusion that delights the viewer as more of the story is revealed.
A blogger, like a magician maintains a generous attitude.
Gardening, like magic, looks easy because of planning and practice that goes into preparing the show.
There's a riot of information racing by in each presentation. We magnify little bits into what we embrace as the full picture. Like the magician's art, garden blogs are meant to entertain and delight.
Do you find magic in blogs? Does your blog delight the viewer with sleight of hand in the garden?
