Uniting the World through Music

Every once in awhile you stop to appreciate the moment we live in. Today it was as I stood in National Airport here in DC, waiting to see a friend off before she boarded her flight.

As I waited, my smartphone and headphones connected me LIVE to the music coming from Armin Van Buuren's A State of Trance show. Every 50 episodes, Van Buuren hosts a huge tour around this time every year - this time for episode 600 of his global radio show. This year he's taken his live tour from places near as Miami, New York, and Mexico City - and as far as Kuala Lumpur, Minsk, and Sofia.

Each time I tune in, I marvel not only of that fact that I can listen in from just about anywhere from a device in my pocket - but also by the the fact that people all over the world are doing the same.
