Recover your Sense of Wonder

February 20, 2010 — 1 Comment

When I was a little kid, my parents once gave me a chemistry set. It had the little microscope, and test tubes, with different chemical components… until one day, I mixed something that turned black and it blew up. LOL Later, my parents gave me a magic set that came with a magic wand and a bunch of other stuff.

It was around that time that Frecuencia Latina used to show the David Copperfield shows, and I remember him flying out of whatever venue he was performing at. “WOW!” I thought, “he really can fly!”

Ever since those days, I haven’t experience magic with that innocent sense of wonder. Sure, David Blane was pretty good when he started out — he’s rubbish since he started that surviving in the tank act — and Criss Angel is okay, but I’ve never really warmed up to him or his show.

Now I’ve finally found out about Lu Chen (Liu Qian), a Taiwanese magician that has given me back the “Wow, how did he do that?” factor that comes with having an innocent sense of wonder. It’s not his big tricks, like escaping from a box that explodes in 60sec. while a truck is about to run over it. Lu Chen’s strength relies on his street magic with common goods like buying Tapioca Milk Tea, buying a T-shirt, or eating Baos on the street.

Thanks for giving me back my sense of wonder.
