The Necessary Art of Taking Note

Have you seen this? This is a story that was published a few years ago, but as I was scrolling through my list of saved favorite sites recently, I came across it and had to read it all over again.

What would you do if you lived in Washington D.C. and on your way to work, passed by a world-class violinist playing his heart out in the subway station you used every day? Though he looked like an average street muscian, would you notice the exceptional quality of music? Would you stop to listen? His performance was arranged by The Washington Post "as an experiment in context, perception and priorities". Read the story here: Pearls Before Breakfast.
