B and I set up at Old Town Sac again yesterday to create and to be inspired. Said inspiration came in the form of this sweet man, Arturo. He saw me from the boardwalk & as soon as I gazed back at him in the same manner as he was gazing at me, with his hand rounded into a periscope & held against his eye, I knew some kind of magic was happening ;) He came over & we started chatting it up about art, music & of course life. He is an amazingly talented artist & I was honored to be able to look thru some of his illustrations in his journal. He came over to meet B as well & once they started talking music he lit up even more! He picked up B's guitar and started playing. "It's been awhile" he said, but there was no denying he needed to never stop playing again & we both told him so.
Although we didn't make any money yesterday, I know we came away from our experience richer for having been inspired and most of all, able TO inspire. It was a good day
