Taking Time to Listen to the Music
We're on vacation and off the blog this week, but couldn't resist sharing this recent post from the Washington Post - Pearls Before Breakfast. WaPo put Joshua Bell (one of the top violinists in the world) into a DC subway station, candid camera-style...waited to see how many people might stop and take time to listen to the music. You can see for yourself with WaPo's videos.
Not everyone can recognize the difference between good and "world class". Bell is fortunate because his gift and expertise are well-recognized (at least in some circles!). How many young people don't develop their exceptional qualities because they learned how good or unusual they were?
