Glory

Doing what you love for a living can be glorious—as long as you can pay the rent. Generally, magicians experience glory while performing. There's just something about having a dozen or a hundred or a thousand people mesmerized by your abilities, each one trying to figure out how you're doing it and none of them ever getting there. 

You may never go down in history like Houdini, but you'll be performing magic like all of the greats.

If it feels glorious, ride that wave. Take it where you can get it.
