On June 26, when traffic came to a complete standstill on I-85 in Atlanta, many people left their cars to walk around, play Frisbee or — in Hailey Ann Smith’s case — strum the harp. “I was in my concert gown and I had the harp in the car from a wedding … so I parked myself in the very middle of the interstate and played a few songs for everybody!” “It’s not every day you get to play your baby grand harp on the middle of I-85.”
When life grinds us to a standstill we choose how we react. You can scream and rage or you can stop and enjoy the music. The problem may be out of your control but your reaction is entirely up to you.
One thought on “Interstate harp”
That was a really cool story! But you’re right: it’s all about how we relate to our circumstances.
