This viral clip of a baby hearing a violin for the first time is absolutely joyous
New experiences become increasingly rare as we age, and they tend to be less welcome, particularly when we reach the stage of “first incredibly long eyebrow hair”, “discovering a new noise coming from our knees” and “the latest idea for Brexit”. But when this clip of a baby having their first experience of violin music hit the internet, everybody’s sheer delight at seeing someone have a good new experience made it go viral.

Russell Roberts made this excellent point.
Lurking in most adults is this level of curiosity, pleasure and delight that we had as children. Our norms prevent us from displaying it. But we need to tap into it from time to time and feel fully alive. So beautiful. https://t.co/MWKJPMvWIk

If someone would care to buy me a new type of pizza, I’m sure I can conjure up some true wonder.
