my husband was cleaning his closet and found this paper. one of his many rituals is to go to the beach, everyday, to watch the sunset, while playing an instrument. he is a jack of all trades master of none when it comes to playing, but still, i enjoy hearing him play. he plays (if i don’t forget anything): acoustic guitar (6- and 12-string, electric guitar (at home, when there’s no sunset), bass, harmonica, ukalele, banjo, ukalin, auto harp, recorder, mandolin, keyboard (at home, when there’s no sunset), violin, and trumpet. sometimes people find it interesting and want to take pictures, sometimes they stop to listen, and the funniest: once a guy gave him a dollar! ha! he must have thought he was out there playing for tips, a common practice at the pier and wharf.
