so i typically don't pay attention to the folks making music in the subway (yes, i am aware that some of them are talented. and that all of them are more musically inclined than i ever was with my stupid flute. but i'm usually too wrapped up in my own stuff), but i was practically standing in the midst of a performance today, so i couldnt help but tune in. and i'm so glad i did. a group of middle-aged men, with a keyboard, were performing "love train". which was entertaining on its own (as they rather sounded like the o'jays), but the platform positively glowed with joy as the 6 pulled into the station as the song during the final chorus. i don't think i've ever felt so perfectly content during a commute as i did at that moment.
its the little things, folks.
