The New York Times - Rachel Cohen

Kuusisto delights in the sparkle of surprises. He and Corky walk into a glass shop in Venice. " 'Listen,' a woman said. I heard the hum of breath moving over glass—she was playing a glass flute! Wind and sunlight pressed through dark leaves. I was sweetly transfixed. This was a shy, unasked-for gift." Eavesdropping has a similar generosity.
