Busy to appreciate beauty

In his 2003 book, Timeless Beauty: In the Arts and Everyday Life, British author John Lane writes about the loss of the appreciation for beauty in the modern world.

If we can't take the time out of our lives to stay a moment and listen to one of the best musicians on Earth play some of the best music ever written; if the surge of modern life so overpowers us that we are deaf and blind to something like that -- then what else are we missing?

There was a musician playing at the top of the Metro station at L'Enfant Plaza station in Washington D.C.



But no one knows that he is the best classical musician in America!

Dover - Serenade lyrics

And I relate to my best friend, she would advice me
She broke our code and she put on her jacket
Now it scares me because she's really gone.
And I relate to my best friend, do you remember?
She was so young and now that we're burning
They're scared because she's really gone.

And if it's going to be my destiny
I don't want to wait till it comes to me
I will work so hard, my hands will hurt
I will pay my sins, if so in hell.
Serenade, serenade me
They say and dry but I'm just sick
Serenade me
They say I'm cold but I'm just sick
Serenade me

And I relate to my best friend, she would advice me
She broke our code and she put on her jacket
Now it scares me because she's really gone.

And if it's going to be my destiny
I don't want to wait till it comes to me
I will work so hard my hands will hurt
I will pay my sins, if so in hell.
Serenade, serenade me
They say and dry but I'm just sick
Serenade me
They say I'm cold but I'm just sick
Serenade me

And if it's going to be my destiny
I don't want to wait till it comes to me
I will work so hard my hands will hurt
I will pay my sins, if so in hell.
Serenade, serenade me
They say and dry but I'm just sick
Serenade me!
They say I'm cold but I'm just sick
Serenade me!
Serenade me!

They say and dry but I'm just sick
Serenade me!
