In her lecture How to Thrive in Uncertain Times: Magic At Work, author Carol S. Pearson doesn’t suggest that one should engage in David Copperfield-style shenanigans and make the Xerox machine disappear or saw the boss in half. Unfortunately. Instead, she calls for creating a “personal utopia” through positive, creative thought. Sure, blissful peace of mind is a fine goal, but it still helps to know a few good card tricks. The sleight of mind begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden’s Ring Auditorium, 7th & Independence Ave. SW. $12. For reservations call (202) 357-3030; Also at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at Borders, 5871 Crossroads Center Way, Baileys Crossroads. FREE. (703) 998-0404. (DN)
