How much beauty do we ignore every day?

I read an article today from the Washington Post about Josh Bell, a world class violinist, playing for change during rush hour. Out of the thousands of people who walked by him only seven stopped to appreciate his playing.

The author talks about how beauty seems to be appreciated only when we expect to see something beautiful, when we are receptive to being "moved" emotionally. It makes me wonder how often our "tunnel vision" causes us to ignore beautiful things.
