Unrecognized talent

Joshua Bell, a world famous violinist that plays sold out shows, is here in the Washington DC subway playing his 3 million dollar violin to strangers. He plays for 45 minutes, no crowd gathered around him. Those that did throw him money, hardly acknowledge him. When he finished there was no applause. He is so talented, and no one noticed... So many of us deserve recognition for our unique gifts, ingenious thinking and noble actions, but we go unheard, unnoticed. Many times we let that beat us down, or fight the urge to let that gap define us (at least I do). Do what you love, because you love it. Not for fame, or recognition or even money. If you find yourself in the lime light, just enjoy it while it last.
