Just Like Marlene Dietrich


« Older A Glimpse Into People’s Souls | Thanksgiving Newer »

They say if you sit in one place long enough in the NYC subway, eventually everyone will pass by you. Today it felt true:


I just started my day busking at the 34th street subway station. A man came over, put a dollar in my donations’ bucket and said: “my grandmother played the musical saw”. So I said: “where did she do that?”
Man: “she played for the American troops in Europe”.
Me: ” that’s just like Marlene Dietrich!”
Man: “that is my grandmother”.


Needless to say my mouth dropped to the floor. I have a photo of Marlene Dietrich playing the musical saw hanging in my room. Meeting her grandson made my day.
Thank you Mr Peter Riva!
