The Nature of Magic is Change

Change is a hard thing to handle for humans, because we're creatures of habit. 

Much like Magic, life is full of change.  Standard rotates.  The tier decks of Modern change or get banned.  Reprints are happening more frequently now. 

But we still are the same people, we're still learning, growing, surviving the day to day.  So why don't we like change? 

Well, because it brings with it the unknown, and the chance of failure, suffering, and loss.

But change is constant, and essential, for a fulfilling experience in life.  I'm following a quote that Steve Jobs said at a graduation, you can find the video about it here:

Stay hungry, stay foolish.

To keep striving, to keep growing, we can't give up and settle if we want to grow, to expand, to see more of this beautiful experience we call life.  

And so it is in magic, magic stories, and life.  Stay hungry.  Stay foolish. Try new things.  Adopt new strategies. Be friendly to different people, and never stop reading and learning!
