Sorry gallagher...I don't read german. How'd you get your piano around? On the trains?

I can't imagine any busker wanting to live in Switzerland in the winter. It gets so dark and gloomy there, the street lights actually stay on all day. You have no idea where the sun is or if it ever existed to begin with.

On a brighter note, I found this passage from Mr. Cellini
Quote:
Exactly who or what is a street magician? In my humble opinion he is a wanderer who believes he is the inheritor of all he surveys. Someone who goes from place to place with or without a settled route or destination. He is a boundary crosser; his purpose is to discover new places, meet new people, make new friends and preserve a way of life while perfecting his craft. He is a person who is both loved and envied for his way of life which appears to the untrained eye as jolly-good, and fancy-free. But in fact it is a life of unremitting toil and unfailing persistence. He must be willing to stake his future on his ability to persist no matter how hard the going gets. He must have an unshakable faith in himself and in his specialized knowledge to resist all the temptation; to buckle under the weight of society, to refuse to be herded like sheep into a pen and to be told when, where, and how long he can stay. He is the first Church of the Street Theater and claims the same rights as any religion. To stand on any street corner and gather a crowd. To say and do as he wants whenever he wishes as long as it is within the bounds of propriety and good taste. And lastly, ask for support. He is adventurous, persistent and courageous. Along with those characteristics, he has the determination to survive, the tongue to persuade, and the hand to execute any mischief called for. He is a man possessing a touch of the earth with a warm and sincere interest in his fellow human beings. His heart, soul and thoughts are those of a king. He is a man blessed with the Royal Touch.


and a little original poetry...

Quote:
Because of their nomadic way of life,
the busker soon moves on his merry way,
only to return
on some sunny Spring day...


that was my final build Smile
Meet you in Busker Alley Smile
