Let the Music Pay

“There are people who can never forgive a beggar for their not having given him anything.” —Karl Kraus

For quite a while now, I’ve enjoyed listening to this man sing and play his guitar on my trips to the grocery store. His weathered, sun-baked skin tells of the many, many hours he has sat here on an upside-down plastic pail, entertaining shoppers and collecting the coins and singles tossed in his guitar case. I had a camera with me on this day, so after tossing my gift into his case, I asked if I could take his photo. He smiled, told me I could then acknowledged two other contributors without missing a beat in his song.
