Roger Klause Encore Performance

Magician Roger Klause passed away.
Roger W. Klause, 70, died Saturday, Aug. 30, 2008.
I never met Roger but have heard a lot about him. He was a magnificent magician. I never attended the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas. It is my understanding that Roger was a frequent attendee.Roger became a regular fixture at magic gatherings, sought by magicians of all levels and from all continents. By the time he was 30, he had developed and earned the reputation for masterful and skillful sleight of hand. His routines regularly bewildered other magicians who found themselves unable to penetrate his methods, and he frequently perplexed the other masters - the ones who "could not be fooled."
By 40, Roger had lectured to and taught many of the finest magicians around the world, some of whom traveled great distances to meet him. At one point, he was famously dubbed, "The Leader of the Underground," signifying his importance to the fraternity and his influence on those he met and the respect he had earned from his peers.

What can we learn from his death? To get on with your life! Get after those things you desire to do.
