CBS Sunday Morning:

COVER STORY: Caring letters
Kevin Hines is a walking miracle, having jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge and survived. But what might have kept him from jumping at all could have been something as simple as getting a letter in the mail.  A long-forgotten yet simple idea is now finding success as a tool for suicide prevention. Lee Cowan reports.

ART: Monet
Claude Monet (1840-1926) was one of the most innovative painters to stand astride two art movements: Impressionism in the 19th century, and the modern art age of the 20th. Barry Petersen visits the Denver Art Museum, which is currently staging the country’s largest Monet exhibit in more than two decades, and talks with curators at the Art Institute of Chicago, about the artist’s fascination with light, and how tragedy colored his work

MUSIC: Mumford & Sons
Mumford & Sons are one of music’s most unlikely success stories. The British group broke through with a banjo-driven folk/rock sound that, Rolling Stone wrote, was “like a horse and buggy designed in a Tesla factory.” With the recent release of “Delta,” their third straight #1 album, they are indisputably among the biggest bands of the past decade. Anthony Mason reports.
