    A Message from Fr. Dan:

    Beauty: Outside a Metro Station inWashington, DC, on a cold January morning in 2007, a man with a
    violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. The man playing
    the Bach pieces was Joshua Bell, playing incognito as part of a social
    experiment about perception, taste and people's priorities,
    organized by the Washington Post
    During the 45 minutes that Joshua Bell was playing approximately
    2,000 people went through the station. In all only 6 people stopped
    to listen. The first was a middle-aged man but he stopped for only a
    few seconds. Next a young man leaned against the wall to listen but
    then looked at his watch and started to walk again. A number of
    small children stopped to look at the violinist but in each case the
    parent tugged them along hurriedly. Joshua Bell played continuously
    for 45 minutes. Six people stopped and listened for a short while.
    About 20 people gave money but continued to walk at their normal
    pace. The collection came to $ 32.00.
    After an hour Joshua Bell finished playing and silence took over. No
    one noticed and no one applauded. What no one knew was that
    Joshua Bell is recognized as one of the greatest musicians in the
    world. Outside the Metro he played one of the most intricate pieces
    of music ever written on a Stradivarius violin worth $ 3.5 million
    dollars. Two days before he played to a sold-out theatre in Boston
    where the seats averaged $ 100.00 each. He played the same pieces
    in the theatre in Boston as he played outside the Metro Station.
    This experiment raised several questions: In a common-place
    environment, at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty? If so,
    do we stop to appreciate it? One possible conclusion reached from
    this experiment could be this: If we do not have a moment to stop
    and listen to one of the best musicians in the world, playing some of
    the finest music ever written, on one of the most beautiful
    instruments ever made, how many other things are we missing as
    we rush through life?
