A Musical Story in Mexico

 The afternoon of December 9, 1980 I was having a beer with two guys in a restaurant in Progreso, Mexico.
One of the two was a German traveler, and the other was a Mexican piano player.
The piano player asked the German, “There’s a German word for the feeling in the tips of your fingers, do you know what that word is?”
The German wrote it down on a
napkin…. Fingerspitzengefühl.
When he was done
writing, he looked up and asked us, “Did you hear that John Lennon was murdered in New York last night?"
