I made ten bucks today by playing my guitar! More than I'll ever make writing, I'm sure. Heh.
I didn't expect it, so it was a nice surprise when all the pickers and grinners added me to their tip-split at the end of the morning's small jam session.
Amazing to me, that folks are so generous in hard times, and are grateful for a little non-political entertainment. No views expressed, just a bit of fun music. The way music is supposed to be.
Sure, I've been a paid musician before, on a more regular basis. But this was a nice little recognition of the fun and serendipity of musical jam done solely for the joy of it, and sharing it with others for free.
Got to sing a little, too. It's just my third time with the group, but they're good folks and great musicians who seem to have accepted my talents as part of their group.
It's always good to have a skill to fall back on. And untraceable cash donations!
