We could all use a little more wonder in our lives, and that's what I love about magic...it incites a sense of wonder. Magic has the rare ability to create a moment where we can be entertained and awestruck by what we don't know.
"How'd you do that?!!!"
That's the phrase I hear most often from people after I perform for them. However, I suspect they don't really want to know. In a day and age when the world is moving so fast and we have seemingly every piece of knowledge available at our fingertips, magic gives us a moment to remember that there is still some mystery left in the world.
So that's my why...
I do magic to incite wonder and add a little mystery to the world, entertaining new friends along the way.
