it’s a sad world we live in

a friend of mine sent me this fascinating article about art/beauty and the rushed world of the commuter. it’s long but very worth the read.

    I saw that, too . . .
    . . . and thought it was definitely sad. Not to say that, had I been late for my train, I would’ve stopped myself. On the other hand, I can’t remember ever *not* stopping when I hear good street musicians (and I listened to the clip — this guy would, I think, have left me stunned).
    Very interesting experiment. I also liked how the change in venue changed Bell’s perspective on his playing.

    Wow. That was fascinating, but unfortunately not surprising. What an experience for Joshua Bell, however.
