I hope they know how much peace and joy they give everyone who is lucky enough to hear them play. They take people who are in a hurry, forget about enjoying life, people like myself, and forget about it all.. The few minutes I am lucky enough to hear them play is huge for me. I am above and beyond grateful to be able to come across them periodically and get to enjoy their music.

I love this but it feels a little judgmental on people, assuming they are “missing” something when what if they are focusing on something they find equally beautiful inside, like a thought, or a memory? Maybe some people were noticing a flower growing out of sidewalk. We just don’t know. Feels a little like mindfulness bullying, you need to focus on what we say is beautiful and in the moment, not what you may already be focusing on in your own world.
I think we need to be kinder to everyone’s human experience. The person walking with headphones lost in a beautiful piece of music, the mother walking down the street to work thinking about the feel of air on her face to have a little time a lone or the guy walking to work enjoying the sun at such an angle that it makes cool shadows on the sidewalk. Just saying, we never know what anyone else is experiencing and noticing.
