I Got Photos!
I was supposed to play at Union Square today, but it’s 32 degrees and snowing/freezing raining…so it’s too cold (not for me but for the saw – the blade doesn’t vibrate properly when it’s cold. That’s why my cut-off temperature for playing in the subway is 34 degrees).
I’m sad to miss the opportunity to play at Union Square – one of my favorite spots. So, instead, I’m checking my e-mail and – what a great surprise – photos from Union Square!
So many people take my picture when I play the musical saw in the subway and I always think to myself as they are snapping their cameras: ‘maybe they’ll be nice and e-mail me a copy…’ but usually they don’t That is why I appreciate it even more when people do send me the photos!
Bonnie sent me these photos (isn’t she a good photographer?!) along with this nice note:
“Hello Saw Lady!
I saw you on Christmas Eve day – I was running around trying to get a million errands done but HAD to stop & take a couple of pictures. I put one of you & a young admirer on my blog, with a little writeup about this fun break in a busy busy day.”
Bonnie’s blog about the day she saw me in the subway
Funny – in this photo of me with both my hands up – I know exactly what music I was playing at that point! (A piece my husband wrote, titled ‘When I’m Alone’).
The photo with the kid is the nicest, because of the kid. By the way – I don’t usually wear an elf’s hat – that was just because it was Christmas Eve…
It is nice people like Bonnie that make playing in the subway such a good experience for me.
THANK YOU, Bonnie!
