Busy-ness vs. Beauty

Here's an interesting article I found through my 'net trawls, about what happens with one of the world's more prestigious violin virtuosos (virtuosi?) plays incognito, in the middle of the city.

On the one hand I can somewhat understand the viewpoint that people are busy, they're not in their best frame of mind for listening and appreciating beauty and all that but... it's still really damn sad.

As I said in the above comment, even if they don't want to stop and listen (and I'd think that at least *some* more of the people could stop and listen, in such a crowd, for one minute or so, without being late) I'm saddened that they can't even perk up, get a lift in their step, glance at the guy making such music and maybe give him at the very least a nod of recognition. That it's so much more important to maintain the Wall Of I Don't See Anything than to acknowledge in even some small way, or even *notice*, beauty when it's right in front of you.
