by now everyone has heard about the horrible mauling of famed magician Roy Horn in Las Vegas on Friday night. Of course, Roy is half of the international sensation Siegfriend and Roy. i first became interested in this dynamic duo when one of our printer reps brought the S&R brochure as a sample...i discovered their website and also their wondrous catchphrase, SARMOTI (Siegfriend And Roy Masters Of The Impossible).
SARMOTI is magic, SARMOTI is life, SARMOTI is better than a Tony Robbins' seminar.
but sometimes we can love too much. sometimes we are blinded by love and don't realize that wild things cannot be trained, cannot be controlled. sometimes we never imagine the possibility of a 600 pound white tiger dragging us off the stage and the only thing that the inept stagehands have is a puny fire extinguisher to make him release us from his deadly grip.
let us all hope that roy pulls through, with his partner of 14 years, siegfried, by his side.
let us hope this event doesn't turn his against his beloved white tigers.
let us hope that he lives a long, long life so that someday he can be a healthy 80-year-old (who looks 50) reflecting on a successful life, both on-stage and off.
