Joy, For Only A Quarter

Looking back over the many hours I’ve spent writing the last few articles I think we need a break (and by “we” I mean I and I’m dragging you along with me).

With all the gimmicks and things of little worth filling the internet, all screaming for your attention, it’s hard to attend to the things you need to find let alone those which are simply just too good not to miss. On a very rare occasion you literally stumble on something so simple, so clear and so full of joy that it just has to be watched again and possibly shared. For me, this is just such a find. I cannot watch this without feeling.

A little girl gives coins to an older and smartly dressed street musician and surprisingly learns about joy in return. The kids these days call this a “flash mob” but what a way to give back to the community.

Additionally, it’s obvious what effect Beethoven’s Ode To Joy gives to the hearer—and makes one wonder why we don’t fill our children’s lives with the opportunity to grow up with such masterpieces more than we do.

Watch the looks on the kids faces and see the definition of joy. I wish I would have been there.
