Today is the perfect day to stay at home and read a good book. Cool post rain breezes blow through my window in this lazy afternoon.
My companion on this great day is “Like the Flowing River” by Paulo Coelho. Which is a collection of short stories and articles by the author. The one that got me the most though, was “Pianist in the Mall. ”
A short summary – One day Paulo Coelho and his friend, an international violinist, were walking in a mall, where they came across a pianist. Who was playing a piece by Mozart, devoid of all those around him, completely lost in ecstasy. Even though no one was watching him, he was playing so beautifully, they both had tears in their eyes.
The pianist taught me a very important lesson:- To always give our best, devoid of all other people’s opinions and circumstances.
