Thought-provoking post! It addresses values as well as perception.

your story says alot about where society really is coming from and how they view themselves and others around them. Excellent post! thank you for sharing. I think I will pick up some music of Mr. Bell and try to appreciate it as much as you apparently do!

this is so great on so many levels.

the buttom line from this story, for me, is that you must stop, and smell the roses, or you live your life, without appreciation for all the beautiful roses that come your way. Today was one of those days for me. Of course it was my day off, so I stopped to smell roses everywhere, and they are abundant. I came across a man standing as an unlicensed vendor, with a very primitive looking gong chair, on the grass in a public place. I stopped :) (not being in a rush) and spoke to him about this chair for about half an hour until he convinced me to try it, I have to say it was one of the most beautiful expeirences in my life. I sat in this chair and the sounds that he somehow brought forth was like ...well I can't even describe how beautiful and peaceful and amazing it was. .....bla bla bla

point is, I just loved this story you posted here, and today was the perfect day for me to read this post, what more can i ask for???? Nothing!

Thank you so much for sharing this. Living in NYC for many years, i am use to seeing street performers.  Those i thought really talented, not only did i stop and listen but gladly paid. What a treat that performance would have been.

Wow!!  This article gave me chills.  I think most people only see beauty where they expect to see beauty.  It is mostly only the poets and romantics that apreciate being caught off guard by something that takes your breath away.

Wow. That is amazing. I would have liked to hear him play, no matter where it was.

This struck a chord for me somewhere, about how talented people without PR
are passed by unnoticed.

WOW. Interesting that he agreed to do this. Human nature is a curious thing. I wonder if I would've been one of the ones to stop...I hope so.

I love this true story  It does make us think how much are we missing in this life. This is a lesson to learn. I will make sure to share this story with my kids. Thanks for sharing.

We have lost an ability to really SEE and FEEL, in our frenetic daily lives

There is much that passes us by without us noticing it Sinome. Like you said how do you perceive beauty..many would start off with first impressions..like looks. How many would look nature in the eye and perceive it as beauty. It is unfortunate indeed. Friendships are akin to family relationships and it is a sorry thing to loose even one good friend along the way. Look at this musician, Joshua Bell..not recognized without his finery. How unfortunate. Thank you sharing this, I loved reading it Sinome. And also for stopping by my blog and yes there are innocence..I agree with you.

A very interesting experiment, that raises a host of questions, and would actually deserve more thought but also more time, which I don't have... And I too was fortunate enough to hear Joshua Bell at a concert here in Toronto some years ago...

How sad that life has become so fast that only a small child is left
with ears open to recognize greatness, I could weep.

This message is vital. Thank you so much for posting it. Quality, talent, gifting, appreciation, love and leisure have all been turned into sameness. We are being molded into automatons with no time to make friends, appreciate greatness or be thankful. The progressives have decided what we need, what it looks like, and who can have it and all of it has come without freedom of speech. We are now on Political Correctness the kiss of death to freedom of speech.
