I worry that we are all missing the little things

I normally don't read the Washington Post, but this link takes you to a interesting tale of ignorance and of an experiment where,
"Joshua Bell is one of the world's greatest violinists. His instrument of choice is a multimillion-dollar Stradivarius. If he played it for spare change, incognito, outside a bustling Metro stop in Washington, would anyone notice?"


I find most buskers to be either very, very good or not. So I can admit to trying to avoid them when bad, but we do need to take the time to see the smells and hear the colors in life. There really is much going on around us as we try to hustle and bustle our way to the goal.

Whatever that is.

This goes for all of us, except Buck.

Thanks for the compliment! Yeah... the little things matter, but that might be because there ain't no mo' BIG things left! :D

Still and even, you're right... especially about buskers. I always stopped to watch those guys and gals when they were good... and dropped a buck or two in the guitar case or hat. Always.
