A Great Christmas Memory 2006…
I was in Downtown Seattle, Christmas shopping with a friend. We stopped by a Starbucks to get a peppermint hot chocolate and saw a young man with handwritten sheet music. He was obviously composing something original, because as he was reading the sheet music, he would direct the orchestra he was hearing in his head. I could not stop staring at him, just stood there in shock.
Beautiful to see an artist at work.
Only after he left, did my friend and I realize that we should have asked him what he was writing.
