..no time at all.
the experiment on the virtuoso who was ignored at the dc station [from the freakonomics blog], as he played some of the most beautiful music composed – having heard Le Violon rouge, i know the brilliance of that artiste – on an instrument truly a work of art itself, proves one thing alone. in our running, our haste to find the next thing to do.. those few minutes at a subway station listening to those artistes.. could be an experience you may never be able to get. ever.
each time i’ve missed a train listening to the ‘subway artistes’, whether in the UK or here, in new york.. i’ve never regretted it. the only thing i have regretted is the fact that i may never get to hear them again.
stop and listen. could it really be so hard ?
