"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."

Albert Einstein

Experiencing awe may make you less selfish, more generous, able to better make ethical decisions, and become overall more "prosocial" (as coined by psychologists) according to a recent article in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Several further studies conducted at the University of California, Berkeley proved that awe does indeed make one more selfless and aware (and responsive) of the needs of  social groups.

     Just past the curious window display next to Darn Good Soup, you descend stairs into the early 20th century for a lively romp and waltz with playing card wizard, Ace Saturn. I attended a recent Saturday evening show with two other magicians and was thoroughly delighted by Ace's script, personality and performance. The spirits of Tesla and Pixie successfully manifested in his quaint parlour theater and Ace's quick and sure pace belied the hour and a half I was astonished to see had passed when I read my time piece after Ace's congenial and informative post-show meet and chat. Don't miss this! Ace is mounting a new show concept for September so your time is limited to enjoy and savor this unique Bloomington magical event!
