A brief post to let you know of a couple of things I’ve got coming up.
First off, on Saturday 18 April, I will be presenting a lecture for Magischen Nordlichter (click here for the site translated into English) starting at 2pm in their headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. You can get more information about the admission fee from the club directly. German lecture notes will be available and are currently being translated into German by Henning Köhlert. This will be my first lecture where I will be working with a translator. Luckily for me the translator will be a young lady called Sonja Husmann whom regular readers (Hello!) may remember from past blog entries. It should be a lot of fun.
The following weekend sees me flying to America to attend Fechter’s Finger Flicking Frolic – aka “FFFF” or simply “4F”. FFFF is an invitation-only convention that is only open to 200 people which takes place in Batavia in upstate New York (approx 30 miles from Buffalo) on the last Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of each April. One thing about FFFF is that all first-time attendees are expected to perform, so I’ll need to make sure I’m ready to perform when I’m there!
So, suffice to say, the second half of April is exciting, scary, nerve wracking and I can’t wait for it all to start. If you’re at either of these events, come up and say “hello”.
