Soap Bubbles



  • Mrs. and I are with our youngest grandchildren this weekend, which makes meaningful trumpet time a challenge. Our 4 year old granddaughter wanted to play with soap bubbles, but I had to make them by blowing through the little plastic doodad that comes with the soap solution. I am counting this as breathing exercise.

    On an related note, the town we are visiting has an active arts scene. Busking is common. I have a question: If I play on a street corner and am paid to stop and go away, am I a pro trumpeter?



  • You need the right bubble solution, but you can dip a piccolo bell in it, play, and produce a bubble.



  • Yes but will it pay?

    Depends on what trumpet you are playing at the time...
    because...
    [wait for it]...

    IT COULD BE A CONN

    Possibly, I saw a show where Joshua Bell was busking in a subway and you'd be amazed at how much he didn't make.



  • Busking on a corner. There can be beauty and sincerity in it. This just seemed pure somehow.

    This guy has way more nerve and confidence than I have.



  • San Franciscans and San Francisco tourists will probably remember this guy. He was around for years.
