Go to him now, he calls you/ you can't refuse

Walking at the farmers market Finn hears him from a block away.
Bob Dylan is here mom!!!!
Of course my camera ran out of juice and I only got a snippet, but I got that first snippet of Finn giving to the arts. Finn has pocket money for the market each week and he normally and wisely buys a sweet treat from the bakery, but today he wanted to give his money to Dylan. (He really thought it was Dylan and no amount of reasoning would fly)

I told him sure. Go for it, it will feel good.
Joe and I used to buy art even when we were poor bc we knew that it would always make us feel rich. I also like to give money to those brave artist who sing out loud for us all. I have tossed coinage all over the world in guitar boxes and I hope that Finn continues to do so. I hope he becomes a missionary of artistic evangelism and I feel so lucky that I was there for that first toss- that moment that welled up in a small boys soul.

Get me delivered to yr email xo

being an ex busker I always give a few coins if I like what I hear. Ruben, my son, is used to this. Mid january, leaving the tube, we heard a guitarist. Ruben requested a coin but I really didn't have a penny. Except I had two chocolate coins Ruben had saved from his Christmas stocking for the journey. he decided to give them to the busker. The musician gave a big smile, so I hope he understood that it was equivalent to me giving him a £20 note.
