Paul Ramunni had been doing people’s taxes for 40 years and he knew it wasn’t something that made them happy. So when one day, he woke up with a strong urge to play the accordion again—an instrument that had embarrassed him as a 10-year-old —he didn’t fight it. Music would probably make people happier than a tax bill. He quickly began collecting more and more of them, and with each accordion, he also collected a special story about the person it had once belonged to.
