magic man to magic: “i felt like the ‘magic’ was getting between me and my fans

As I walk along the Gambian beaches, I am often approached by young men wanting to be my friend.  Usually on those walks, finding new friends isn’t one of my goals.  Everyone has the same conversation starteds: What’s your name?  Where are you from?  Some time ago, I wrote about adopting a stage name: Magic Man from Brigadoon.

Unfortunately, Magic Man created more questions than it answered, so I’ve shifted to Magic.  From Brigadoon.  Yes, that’s somewhere in Europe.

* The line in the title is from rapper P Diddy.

  1. Magic, I am excessively diverted by your second line: “Usually on those walks, finding new friends isn’t one of my goals.”

  2. penelope, that is awesome, i’m glad to know i have friends in deceit.

    mrs m, i felt genuinely bad admitting that there are moments in which finding new friends is not what i am after. i really do like new friends.

  3. So are they just really friendly? Somehow I think there is something more they are seeking, not to suggest that you are not worthy of so many people wanting to be your buddy. 🙂
