When did our daily rhythms become so comfortable that we hesitate to break them, even for a moment? How rarely do we choose to stray from our routinized path, as we take step after step each day? Why do we often go through life wearing self-prescribed blinders that hide all but our own worlds from our views?
These were all questions I started asking myself while reading an article in “The Washington Post” about famed violinist Joshua Bell.
