A Smile, a Grin, a Laugh, That’s Life

Book written by: Victoria & John Galasso

John Galasso, Kreskin & Victoria Galasso with their book “A Smile, a Grin, a Laugh, That’s Life.

Yours truly has had a passion for reading. It’s been a major part of my personal and professional life. It’s nothing for me to read in an evening 3 to 4 books, and I’ve added an entire addition to my home library that now numbers some 8,000 books. With all those volumes, I want to share with you:

A Smile, A Grin, A Laugh, That’s Life, written by Victoria Galasso and John Galasso, a daughter and father.

It is one of the most remarkable volumes I have read in a long time. Unbelievably it’s a treaty on laughter and how it can become a healing force. What is so unique of the writings and expressions of professional comedians as well as psychologists, and medical people, all of whom, in a fascinating way, expose the fact, little realized today, that laughter can literally heal. It is clear to me that this book can become a supportive tool in ones life. After reading A Smile…my advice is to keep the book on your dresser or your office desk. Just pick it up a couple of times a day and thumb to a page or two which when you glance over a couple of passages, I predict will bring a smile to your face. You want to know something, as strange as this sounds, this book could appropriately be sold in the vitamin section of a pharmacy.

Yes, without the consuming of pills or drugs you will learn that laughter has the power to heal.

The Passing of Alan Colmes

Posted by admin On February - 23 - 2017
 

Alan Colmes & Kreskin January 13th, 2017

The radio and cable news broadcast industry has lost a special figure and I personally have lost a remarkable, cherished broadcast friend, namely Alan Colmes.  All of us who worked with him considered him one of the warmest and kindest figures you could find in the industry.  Alan and I knew each other for some 30 years.  When I last appeared with him, which was on his radio show on January 13 of this year, we reflected on his adding to my career an unforgettable memory and learning experience.  Early in his career he had an ABC late night radio show.  He had decided on one of his vacation days to turn his show over to yours truly.  How vividly I remember sitting in front of a microphone as it went live a few minutes past midnight, knowing I had four hours and 55 minutes to fill.  That he put his trust and confidence in me was very special.  I was overwhelmed to realize that his work consumed these hours, live, night after night, through the many months that he was on the air.  He was a man of the highest integrity and had an extremely generous feel in relating to others.  Yes, in simple words, he was a very good and kind man.  He had a passionate love and care for his wife Jocelyn.  Indeed in the off microphone time when I last saw him he expressed more concern, about how his wife would handle her loss then he was about his own condition.  Talk about an unselfish human being, when we were on the air I found it overwhelming that as he had always done in the past, he carried on and intensively passionate conversation without the damnedest hint of what was hanging over him.  The listeners had no clue of that.  Half way through the show I did a mental test with him that was rather complicated, and had never been done by me on a public broadcast.    His concentration and focusing was undiminished and he picked up the mental responses that I was projecting, resulting in the exciting climax to the experiment.  He talked about this for much of the rest of the show.  Yes, I have personally lost a special communication friend, but the bond that we had is one of the richness’s of my life.

Kreskin Overcomes Blindness !!!

Posted by admin On December - 27 - 2016
 

dark-glassesregular-glasses Yours truly would never keep his audiences and followers in darkness, but it’s time I shared the lack of light that was experienced by me for a number of weeks.

There was much excitement after Election Day, when Fox TV discovered I had predicted on a live broadcast on Dec. 9, 2015, on their affiliate in Washington, DC, WTTG, who would be the next President.

The next day that my life changed. I saw for a second time an Ophthalmologist who was treating my right eye. Within hours after the treatment I found myself losing clarity and vision, and the loss of eyesight rapidly continued, and within days I was totally blind in my right eye. I urgently sought and was referred to a new eye surgeon, as it was clear I needed care as soon as possible. The surgeon diagnosed that as a result of that earlier treatment that the retina of my right eye was almost completely detached. This surgeon treated me for the detached retina. However, the loss of eyesight was continuing and for the next 10 days or more, I was totally blind in my right eye. For a week my performances were cancelled without explanation and I have not been allowed to travel by plane until after the first of the year because of pressure. Just a little over a week ago, I began perceiving light with my right eye, followed by images which my medical team tell me is revealing the gradual return of my eyesight. Just so you know that after the first week of the blindness, I reinstated my performance schedule which included a theater appearance and private program. No one had any idea that I was functioning with only my left eye. I had planned to continue to perform and would not let the eye crisis hold me back.

With the return of my vision taking place, this is a time of great excitement. My Christmas has been very special this year and I promise you my coming year will be as busy and energetic a time of performing as I’ve ever experienced. I am sure that I will be able to “see” into the future with great clarity and if I debate on television or with the media on any issue, there’s no doubt that in many ways we will see “eye to eye”.
