Can you hear the music?
In the car on the way to las cruces for non other than a “lost” party (woot!) I had my friend caleb on the phone. In the process of trying to figure out where eachother were Caleb randomly blurted “that hippie has a lute!!!!” Perplexed I dismissed the usual awesome nonsense that usually occurs in our conversations and continued. However! When turning the same corner that he had previously, I saw it! A couple sitting down on the median strip armed with a washboard and a lute playing their hearts out!
Needless to say my cargroup tipped them. They deserved it. For instead of wasting space with a cardboard sign begging for money, the couple was contributing to society by spreading their love of music. I couldn’t help but smile.
