Happy birthday Harry!

Me thinks I'll do "The Best Damned Linking Card..." for someone in your honor (it's a staple of my repertoire, thank YOU very much).

In my mind I have two Harrys forever hard-wired in my brain as it relates to magicyou and Anderson.

Thanks for all the wonderful books on magic and memory.

Happy Birthday Mr. Lorayne!

"What would man be without his capacity to remember? Memory is a passion no less powerful or pervasive than love. What does it mean to remember? It is to live in more than one world, to prevent the past from fading and to call upon the future to illuminate it. It is to revive fragments of existence, to rescue lost beings, to cast harsh light on places and events, to drive back the sands that cover the surface of things, to combat oblivion and to reject death... Someday, in years to come, I would celebrate memory, but not yet." --Elie Wiesel, All Rivers Run To The Sea, Memoirs

You forgot Houdini, and Riser, and Blackstone Sr. & Jr., and Stanley.

You need to re-read Harrys memory books again.

Happy Birthday!
