One of the frustrations of producing a project like the "Spirit of Magic" interview series, is a lack of time. There are many performers from all aspects of the art that we call "magic" that I hope to have a chance to speak with for the benefit of our listeners.  Long on my list of potential guests was one of the crowned princes of street performing, Jim Cellini. From many sources, we have received the very sad news that Jim died in Switzerland today after suffering a stroke earlier in the year. To quote HerbLarry, "Crowds are now gathering on streets of gold to the sound of one wand tapping."  I feel certain that he's already gathering a crowd on the other side as I pen this for you.
