JIN-LEE PRESENTS: "The Perpetual Shuffling Of Life"

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


A pack of playing cards is like the story of Life, all encompassed in 52 cards.

The shuffling of the cards is very much like the comings and goings of life...

When the cards are shuffled, who know where each card may lie?

As Life goes on...who can say where the pieces may fall?

In this perpetual shuffling of life, we all aim to find our semblance of peace...we all strive to find order amongst chaos...sometimes we win and sometimes we lose; sometimes we fail utterly in our endevours; sometimes we are triumphant.

Whatever it is I have my playing cards and the art of Prestidigitation to keep me going, through thick and thin.

Thank you for the performance. The truth is I stumbled into you a few days ago. Your words to another community member about this place and others here were somewhat sour. Of course we all have bad days and gaining traction here is no easy feat; can be quite frustrating. Though I'm not a fan of what I'd call 'generic brand Truther content' (don't take it personally), in my five years plus being around this block, I think that's the first 'Magic' show I've come across. It's one of my favorite artforms.

Mayhaps it's because i come from the LBRY community where there is more heavy-duty type content compared to on the HIVE blockchain...that's why i made the "shallow" remark. But i meant no harm.

I'm astonished other magicians haven't tapped into the HIVE blockchain...in this regard my colleagues in the Fraternity of Magic still have the old school way of thinking. I hope i can convince more of them to come on board.

I'll be sharing more magic performances to come...just running outta resource credits right now lol

Take care!

One could convince 500 more to come and perform, but if they don't bring an audience or market with them, they'll fall through the cracks. My recent post explains more, along with a few responses to comments. Think of it like setting up a public performance. You wouldn't go out to the middle of some random field expecting to get noticed and maybe paid. That's what plenty of noobs on Hive do though.

And I didn't take it personally. Thought it was funny.

Hive is decentralized. Nobody to hold your hand, but you're free to put in the work and time; make your own magic. Society doesn't know what to do with that kind of freedom. The roads are all paved before they learn to walk. That's something I touched on two posts ago.

Thank you for the advice!

I feel a lot of new Hivers come at this platform with entitlement, because they heard all about the rewards and pay, and so come at this with high expectations of success.

Is there anything you can suggest or teach me about growing my page/channel (is that why you call it here?)

Thank you!

Yes, promoting 'get paid to create content' makes some think there's a participation award waiting for them. It's like anything though. Everyone starts from scratch. And because more content creators show up than content consumers, the struggle is real.

It's hard to say what helps one grow. No different than a Youtube channel really. Everyone started from nothing at some point. Some of those folks have more videos than views on all their work combined. I'd say you have personality so that helps in the long run. I always said people don't follow art, they follow artists.

Mingling helps of course. You can post but if nobody knows you exist, they won't see your posts. Find your people.

There's a content creator; new arrival. She's on peakD or hive.blog trending now talking about having 2.5 million followers outside. She'll still struggle here, since none of those people, are here. That's just the way it is.

I see. I think i'm getting the essence now. I just read your "Hive Story" blog post and also the comments of your post, i gotta say i have been humbled and bless by your reaching out to me.

I'll do my best to put our audiences first, which is what i do best anyway.

Gonna go smoke my pipe!

I approve of your Sleight of hand, when filming you have the amazing potential direct our attention in a much more refined direction. I have always been deeply fascinated in this art as a percussionist, the symmetry and smooth movement is very impressive.
