Friendly “Magician” on the LRT
We don’t often take the LRT, unless we are going to my daughters Stollery appointments as the kids love “riding the train.” Today’s ride was even more special. A gentleman came on the car and went to sit down, upon seeing my kids he stood back up and came to sit with them. It seemed a little odd at first, but we always try to give people the benefit of the doubt. It took but a minute for this friendly older gentleman to start in on my girls with his “magic tricks.” From making a ball “disappear” to some extremely impressive card tricks he had our family, as well as a lot od the other LRT passengers, entertained the whole route.
We got to chatting about his grandkids and such, and I wish I had gotten his name! Has anyone ever encountered this man before, or know who he is? He was such a kind, genuine spirit I would love to reconnect or at least pass along how he made my families day. I did shake his hand and say thank you as I left, but I just feel compelled to reach out and see if I can’t track him down. He was a native man I would say in his 60’s dressed in westernish attire. Regardless of if I ever see him again, I just want to shoutout to him for making our day! If you ever encounter this beautiful soul, please do not just roll your eyes and ignore him like I seen some others doing today, give him a moment of your time it is obvious he lives to entertain and make others smile.
