Rush Hour Focus

My brother alerted me to an article published by WaPo in 2007 that captures how our focus on the current rush causes us to completely miss spectacular beauty around us.  WaPo convinced the world class violinist Joshua Bell to play some of the most beautiful and intricate classical music using one of the finest available violins … at a subway station during rush hour.  With one exception, only the children paid attention and wanted to watch, which the parental guardians dutifully prevented. 

I need to pray more for God to give me the eyes of a child to better see and enjoy the beauty and blessings God places all around us.
