Meeting a musical soul as he busks his way across Europe

He’s a musician from New York busking his way across Europe, carrying a notebook, a banjo and a heart full of song. We talked about our shared faith in the world around us, that indefatigable trust in humans to be inherently good. As the night wore on we traded stories from the road, then he tuned his guitar and encircled us with music.

Maybe I’m just a sucker for street musicians or boys with blue eyes, but it seemed really simple to make that connection. Humanity revolves around kindness, and it makes us strong. I like to think about him out there somewhere, his fingers dancing across guitar strings with all the strength in the world.
