Clown Happy, Times SQ

Life of a subway performer continued. Clowns in NYC subway March 18, 2011
Arriving at my scheduled spot to perform in Times SQuare, William Ruiz the amazing native american tongue drummer and percussionist was still performing. As he was playing along passed clowns Dolly Dimples, (Sacramento CA) and Sparky The Clown, (Lake of The Ozarks, MO aka Jackie Newton) on their way to the 2011 World Clown Convention  What inspires Dolly and Sparky? "Smiling...we have to learn to laugh at ourselves." "My grandson, and dogs..." 

Who says the subway isn't full of fun and fascinating people. For musicians, it's our office so we hang and chat. Water cooler chat subway style.

Martina's Inspiration

At Penn Station MUNY gal pal and diva extraordinaire Martina Bruno walked by and stopped for a chat and spontaneous song (note the train horn)! Her infectious laugh and words, well....Inspiring.

What's Martina's Inspiration? "Smiles, children, dogs, people..."We're all one, when I see someone else, I see myself."

"You're whole and complete, there's nothing that you need to fix, you're perfect the way you are."

See why I love to film these little treasures.  What's Your Inspiration?  Come find me at one of my gigs and let me know.
