"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science."
Welcome to March's "Mysteries of the Mind" monthly newsletter!
Once a month, I send this newsletter filled with quick updates on the world of mystery and links to interesting photos, articles, and videos on the web!
This month I offer you a dazzling optical illusion that will make a fun conversation piece on your desk or in your office. This little dragon illusion was originally created in 1998 for the Gathering for Gardner. They are a wonderful group that promotes recreational mathematics, magic, puzzles, and philosophy.
Watch the video at "Dragon" to get an idea of how powerful this illusion really is. Then download the dragon cutout in red, green or blue below and proudly display your new office pet!
"Man's greatness lies in his power of thought."

This week I performed for Las Vegas High School to raise money for the dwindling education budgets in our community. Children need access to the tools necessary to reach their full potential. We filled the room, but even in a half filled auditorium this show can bring in $10,000 per night to help needy schools. I would love to chat with you about bringing this program to your area.
If you are in Pennsylvania, I will be presenting an academic paper this week at the Theory and Art in Magic conference at Muhlenberg College in Allentown.
If you are in Illinois, you can catch my live performance and lecture for graduate students at the University of Illinois on "The Rhetoric of Deception: Powerful Tools for Understanding When We are Being Deceived," and "The Five Keys to Understanding How to Effectively Persuade With Truth."
That's all for this month. Perhaps this will arrive in your mailbox just as you are thinking of finding a speaker or entertainer for your business, local theater or event. I am excited to come to your town!
Please send me your updates; I always love hearing from you!

This is really fun and easy to create! It takes less than 3 minutes from printing to finished Dragon. Just fold along the dotted lines.
