It's not that "nobody was listening"....but the fact that "just a few STOPPED to listen" ... We don't have any excuse for loosing the ability to respond to beautiful things, I think it's our personal responsibility to discover and nurture it to give value to life...What else could be out there ? Our only meaning here in this world is to see and wonder.... and applaud.
That was his stage, I like how nicely he dressed for the occasion of his concerto ...He wanted to be "seen" as much as being "heard"....
A very touching picture and story.
Did you talk to him ?
You stopped... and not only did you stop, you captured the moment and shared it. I'm sure he was overjoyed that a beautiful young lady took the time to listen, watch him play AND take his photograph!
