Holiday snap

August 30, 2006 09:03

Well, im back in England and wondering why I have so much time on my hands, I dont start teaching again for a few weeks. I have tired myself out with practicing so I thought id share this moment from my recent holiday to Austalia - the guy here is doing a street entertainment type thing and he volounteered me and some other tall guy to hold two peices of rope to keep him steady.


I am holding the rope which is nearest the bottom left of the picture, and this pirate guy has been building up to this point in the show for about 25 distinctly boring minuites. I couldnt help thinking to myself, wow, I could really liven up this show by just letting this rope slip through my hand and seeing him fly. After all, I have delicate violin playing hands to take care of.
