The Missing Gorilla

Street at Dawn | www.ravenswork.com

In a recent study, a number of radiologists looked at a series of X-rays as if they were looking for lung cancer. On one of the X-rays was placed a picture of a gorilla the size of a matchbook, about 45 times larger than the nodules they were looking for. Eighty-three percent of the radiologists missed the gorilla. So … what am I missing by focusing on the narrow interests of my life? How much beauty is there in the world that I could enjoy if I would broaden my perspective? Do I hear all of the instruments interacting and playing with each other, creating their sonic dance?
