"America has only three cities: New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. Everywhere else is Cleveland."
- Tennessee Williams, American playwright

This month, I’ve just returned from New Orleans and am just about to head off to San Francisco. Next up: New York! And lots of Cleveland! Ha!

In truth, every place I travel across America has its own rhythms, cuisines, art, culture, history, and heritage that I love to experience.

New Orleans:

When I began my full-time professional magic career, the Bourbon Street Casino was the first casino in Las Vegas where I had a regular show. The Orleans was the first casino to put my face on the marquee. This week, I had a wonderful sold-out show at a hidden, second-story speakeasy on the actual Bourbon Street in the real New Orleans!
Isn’t it beautiful how life comes full circle?


I will be appearing again at FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ in September performing, moderating panels, and interviewing celebrities! Will you be there?

My Hometown City Hall:

This five-foot-tall image created by artist Jim McGee is now hanging alongside nine other portraits in my hometown city hall.

Each piece of art comes with a statement from the subject about their experiences living in Holladay, Utah.

Visit the art in person or my Facebook page online to find out more!

Opening Act for Houdini:

Artist Alan Firestone hand-painted this stunning alternative history poster! Wow! I’ll be taking this artwork to be framed this week. Thank you, Alan, for the beautiful gift. As we know, Houdini died on Halloween night in 1926 and didn’t make it to the show, so it looks like we will be going on without him! (But I bet you could catch him after the show during our midnight séance!)

Finally, I want you to know that if there is ever anything I can do to make your life better, you can count on me! Just email or call any time.

If you know anyone who could use my services, remember that referrals from friends are over half my business! I am available for corporate banquets, trade shows, morning energizer meetings, and events. I'm never too busy for you.

Your friend,

Paul Draper

MUM & Reviews

I’ve been writing a monthly column for MUM Magazine that goes out to all of the members of the Society of American Magicians. Just sent in my article for September! Have you been reading the column so far? Sign up here

In New Orleans's famous Jackson Square, I enjoyed this wonderful street performer playing the water-glasses! The last time that I saw him perform was about a block away from this very spot in 2002! Sixteen years later, now in his eighties, he is still living a beautiful life filled with music.

When I first ran across him all those years ago, I was still an anthropologist, and it was a time before the advent of cameras in phones. I took a shot of him with my SLR camera and kept walking. He shouted after me, "So you could afford a camera, film, and development, but you couldn't afford a dollar for my tip glass? You'll remember that every time you look at my photo." Of course, I ran back and tipped him in 2002, and I gave him another $25 during this trip!

Mysteries of the Mind Monthly Newsletter June 2018 June's Mysteries of the Mind Newsletter If you want even more success, travel, growth, and happiness than you are already enjoying, I can suggest from experience that you deepen your understanding of why empathy works physiologically and how to harness this cool natural tool to live a better life. In past newsletters, I have shared stories about contagious yawning - the phenomenon that, when we see others yawn, or even read about yawning, causes most neurotypical people to have a tickle of a desire to yawn, as well. This communal yawning is…

Mysteries of the Mind Monthly Newsletter May 2018 May's Mysteries of the Mind Newsletter A Harvard study that began almost 80 years ago shares the secrets of a long and happy life! It is very rare to see a human study last this long and collect so much amazing data. When the study started, the researchers interviewed 268 Harvard sophomores in 1938 without any idea where the study would go or who the participants would become. Some of the subjects went on to be leaders in business, industry, and even one president of the United States! (Watch the video to…
