The 09/28/13 Joy Jar

28 Sep

The bus tunnel runs underneath Seattle and on a blustery, rainy day it is a good way to escape the weather. One doesn’t expect much, just a ride. Today moi was treated to the beautiful sounds of sitar music. Like moi, one of the street musicians had taken refuge in a landing. Today’s deposit into the Joy Jar is the beautiful music of the sitar.
