Day 151: ...a forlorn hope?
Actually, today was a little better than that. Looks like we might have a bit of a regular gig of sorts down at the local cafe...took the old sax along, played a few tunes and made some people happy. It was a bit of fun, and a good way to get the saxophone up and running again. Our new cafe owner Gloria is bringing a special vibe to the neighbourhood.
[People actually gave actual money* even though I wasn't properly busking, just reading a few notes, down the arcade and faking the vibrato...*all monies donated to charity]
There were a few light showers this morning, following a beautiful pink-coloured sunrise. I was intrigued with the focal decisions the fruit phone made today...just a little different from the roses, the petals of which dropped on the ground following the rain.

The afternoon was play day. Another one at the QTC studio in South Brisbane, starring Ursula Yovich who did such a marvellous job last year in Mother Courage. Today's was 'The Magic Hour' a dark, contemporary take on the Brothers Grimm, a two-hour one-hander. Yep, one woman, several characters. Beautifully realised and what a voice! So pleased I saw it.
