We have all been there before. The other extreme is 'Stop and smell the roses." Which category do you fall into the most, an abundance of business or stopping to enjoy the beauty along the way? How often do you miss something in this life because you are running five steps ahead of yourself? I know I do. I wrote this column to myself, but you can read it along RickKraft with me if you would like to. One of my favorite sayings is "What you focus on expands." This saying can be interpreted many ways. One application is "You will find what you are look- ing for." In other words, in a rela- tionship with another person, if you want to think negatively about that person, focus on the negatives of the person and you will find the negatives. If you want to think positively, think about the person's positive at- tributes and you will find them. If you want disunity with another person or organization, focus on what you disagree on. If you want unity, focus on what you agree on. Either way you will find what you are looking ]:or. Another application of this saying is "You will notice what you focUs on." For example, if you are looking for orange Volkswagon Bugs, you will no, tice them when one drives by. Otherwise they may pass you un- noticed. If you like sports cars,, you will be more likely to notice a Corvette, a Camaro, or a Mus- tang. Yet another application of this saying is "The more you study a topi;,the more you learn." This would apply to a per son who studies an area such as global warming, the Civil War, or God. The ,more you delve into a topic, the more you find out about what you are studyingl As you learn, the" topic will eggand. A very interesting study was done one cold morning at a Metro sta- tion inWashington D.C. It was et" tt F B lte' :Tashin'gtorl P0'st 'as an experiment in context, pereep tion, and priorities. As part of the study, it was videotaped. It was 7:51 a.m. on,Friday, January 12 , 2007 in the middle of the morning rush hour. A young white man positioned himself against a Wall beside a trash basket wearing jeans, a long-sleeved T- shirt and a Washington Nationals baseball cap. From a small case he re- moved a violin. He placed the open case at his feet and threw a few dollars and pocket change into the case as seed money, turned to face the pedestrian traf- fic and he began to play his vio- lin the best he could. The musician played his heart out hoping to catch the at- tention of those who heard him and hoping to gain an audience and make some money. In the.'next 43 minutes, the violinist performed six Bach pieces, classical masterpieces .that have endured for centuries on their brilliance alone. Dur- ing the time he played, 1,097 people passed by. Most all of them were on the way to work. Because of the Metro station that was selected, most of those who passed by were mid-level bu- reaucrats with government jobs. Each passerby had choices to make when he or she encoun- tered the street musician, in- cluding stopping to enjoy the music, donating money, or just walking on by. Only about a half dozen people stopped to listen, each for a brief period of time. At one point a young boy stopped only to be hurried along by his mother. About 20 people do- nated money as they walked on by. The musician made $32.17 for his efforts. No one clapped for him as he finished each of his six num- bers. When he finished the last song he packdd up his violin and moved on without any recogni- }ion of his talent. ing was that three nights earlier the musician had performed for a sell out crowd at Boston's stately Symphony Hall, where merely pretty good seats went for $100. Two weeks after play- ing in the Metro station the mu- sician played at the Music Cen- ter at Strathmore, in North Bethesda to a standing room only audience. Not that any of the passerbyers cared. The musician is a onetime child prodigy, now 39 years old. His name is Joshua Bell, and he is an internationally acclaimed virtuoso. Mr. Bell had com- manded $1000 a minute for his playing, but as a street musician he av'eraged less than $1 per minute for the time he played. Not that any of the passerbyers cared. This study raises many questions. If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing some of the fin- est music ever written on one of the most beautiful instru- ments ever made, how many other things are we missing as we rush through life? This is something for each of us to give thought to. Often we fail to create margin in our life to enjoy life's treasures..By focusing on the destination, too often we discount the journey and we miss blessings along the way. My challenge to you and to me today is to not be so busy that we miss beauty and oppor: tunities that present us in our lives. There are roses that should be smelled, activities to be relished, smiles to be cher- ished, and moments that need to be savored. Don't miss these life opportunities. It is the journey that counts, not the destination. Choose carefully what you fo- cus on, it will expand. Just a thought...

She raised two children and her hands rarely rested. She held various jobs in her lifetime, including cleaning rooms, working as a clerk and waiting tables. She was a wonderful cook and could turn out delirious dishes using leftovers. We always were amazed by her presentations[ Mama's creative hands made quilts, crocheted and knitted items and many babies were recipients of her blankets or booties. She was also a great seamstress and could sew a new item or alter an old one like a pro. Soon she began making dolls and enjoyed giving them as gifts, Many of her crafts won blue ribbons at the fair or were part of various raffles for needy causes. As she aged, her busy hands were marked with enlarged veins and eventually arthritis caused her ioints to swell. But even that didn't stop her although it did slow her down a bit. Til the end of her life, her touch was still loving and tender lust as 1 remembered from my childhood. I wishl could hold her hands in mine right now. !.look down at my own hands and 1 see the-veins---like ng mama's hands-:-and that serves to comfort me. We and missyou, Mama.
