Well, what is a magician to do in times like this? Virus science and statistics are flooding the media and overflowing into our minds, and debates and arguments abound on social and anti-social media concerning the best way forward. I don’t know about you, but my brain is starting to hurt!

The best antidote to reams of hyper-rational scientific crunchy statistics is wonder. Yes, fellow magicians; what people still need, probably more than ever, is a moment of transport into a realm that is beyond logic, fact and peer-reviewed study. As magicians, it is our artistic responsibility to provide the muggles with moments of wonder to remind them that there is a mysterious world beyond the known and measured. Art reminds us that life is about more than surviving:  beauty, love and wonder make life worth living. Magic shares wonder.

Now keep on magicking, and go blow some minds!
