Subway

Last month I was on the subway and a violin player got on. You see them all the time, and mostly they just quickly work through two or three annoying evergreens as fast as possible so they can make the rounds and coerce cash out of our pockets, making you think “oh no not again… “.

At the next stop however a mother got in, pushing her pram, with a crying baby. The guy stepped over, changed the tune to one of those memorable lullabies, and after a few seconds the baby stopped crying. He played two more, then made the rounds, and probably collected a lot more than he ever did before. It was a moment where you felt everyone around you felt the same way.

Of course, he got off and as he walked away the baby started crying again.
