She Sees A Piano At A Bus Stop. When She Starts Playing, Everyone Stops In Their Tracks
Since the 1950s, the average life expectancy for people living in first-world countries has jumped from 65 to an outstanding 83 years old. As we're living longer, we have ample opportunities to learn new skills and travel to faraway places. Unfortunately, our climbing lifespans also open us up to more cognitive decline. While severe cognitive deterioration leads to dementia, Alzheimer's, and other horrible diseases, most people suffer only a little decline in their cognitive abilities. This woman, who discovered a portable keyboard waiting at her usual bus stop, plays it beautifully, as if she'd been playing all her life. Getting older doesn't make you less useful. Just more refined.
