Be still...

I would do karaoke if this were how the night ended (thanks Mike!)

And another example I'd seen awhile ago showing that things aren't always as they seem. Joshua Bell, violin virtuoso plays in a DC Metro stop...

In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

No one knew this but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin worth 3.5 million dollars.

Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston and the seats average $100 each.

Where are you missing the music for the mundane?
