I’ve written before about the lack of other people’s ability to appreciate awesomeness. It saddens me.
Today during a break at work, I went into the breakroom and stretched out on the couch. I pulled out my phone and headphones and listened to a recording of my community band’s 2016 spring concert. I listened to Danzon #2. Listen to it here.
No. It’s not perfect but damn! It’s seriously good considering we is a community band made up of volunteer musicians.
As I listened to the streaming awesomeness I thought about the people I know and how not one of them appreciates it. They don’t come to my concerts. They don’t listen to the recordings. They don’t give a shit. My eyes leaked with sadness for them.
It is so difficult living in an awesome world while the zombies all around you go through life with blinders on. I just don’t know what to do. How do you make people stop and see the greatness?
