A fellow Shambhalian posted a summary of the turn of events surrounding Joshua Bell and an experiment in perception formulated by Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post (for which the Washington Post won a Pulitzer in 2007) played out by the world reknowned violinist at the L'Efant Plaza Metro station. A few years old though this story may be, it is nonetheless still a relevant study in how often we are just too busy, too wrapped up in ourselves, to insulated from the world around us to notice true beauty when it presents itself.

Which it does, in so many ways, in every moment of our lives.

The text of a representative e-mail about this story, along with corroborating evidence, is available on Snopes. Take a moment to read and reflect. Then go out and actually look, listen, feel, smell and even taste your world, if only for a moment.
