beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Thanks to Dan for posting this. Are people really this closed off?

Pearls Before Breakfast.

If I had heard that music coming from some place, I’d have to go find it, regardless of how late I would be. I don’t understand how people can pass up something that beautiful, without at least wondering about it.

The other day I watched a few deer play outside my window, and I was shocked to see the amount of people who walked right by them without seeing them. Just wow.

Have we really entered a world where people do not see beauty anymore?

    That’s … shocking.

    I like to think I would’ve stayed, though. And listened.

    ‘Cause seriously, Chaccone? Beautiful.

  2. I read this the other night, and while my initial reaction was shock and dismay, my opinion has changed as I’ve thought on it more. I think the place where they did the “social experiment” was a bit unfair, really. Choosing a busy time of day, a busy place where people are trying to get somewhere on time, constantly, etc. isn’t really fair. They should at least have a control group of sorts, say, to do this on a college campus or some market area. The results would undoubtedly be much different. It seems to me that the writer of the article and those conducting the experiment sort of had an outcome that they desired, deep down.

    Honestly, when I’m in the city or something, I’ll stop and see what’s being done or played by street artists. However, if something was going on in my local train station at one of the only times of day where I’m absolutely hauling ass, I probably would pass by, too, because, as beautiful as it is, it’s not going to be my education or pay my bills.

    I definitely agree with you Lelia. I think that having a control group would have been better for the initial results. It would be interesting to see what would happen a train station in a smaller town too.
