Washington, DC Metro Station on a cold January morning in 2007. The man with a violin played six Bach pieces for 45 minutes. As 2000 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. A middle aged man noticed there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace, paused then hurried to meet his schedule. Minutes later: The violinist received his first dollar: a woman threw the money in the hat w/o stopping.A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and left. A 3-year old boy stopped but his mother tugged him along.The musician played continuously. Only 6 people stopped & listened. Several gave tips in their rush. Silence took over as he stopped playing. No one applauded. The unknown violinist was Joshua Bell. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before, Joshua Bell sold out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.
This social experiment was organized by the Washington Post. So how do we perceive beauty? And appreciate it? Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context? How do we overlook what is right next to us? We are all prone to the myth of the perfect stranger. We have the capacity to face loss/misfortune/regret and move past it. It is not too late. The most secure prisons are the ones we construct for ourselves. We must rely on hope, chance, intuition and a willingness to be surprised.
