This is what it's all about for me. I love performing on the streets for tips. They call it "busking". I get to see kids dance, smile, sing along, parents give their kids some cash and encourage them to throw it in my case (some are bashful others not). I of course nod my head thank you or bow to them, but once in a while you get a kid like this whose parent didn't want to stop or even acknowledge me, (which is totally fine) but this kid just stopped dead in her tracks and stared me down. I loved it so so so so much. The mom had no choice but to let her kid take the music in, she even tipped me a dollar at the end of the song. It's moments like these that make being a musician so worth all the hours of practice, and being antisocial because I would rather hang out with my guitar. Thanks kid, you're really awesome. I hope one day you grow up to be an artist of some sort.
