I do not pay attention

In Thoughts by Tyson on June 8, 2012 at 9:55 am

Today I went to an art school — I did this because I would like to become an artist. The school was far away and I had to walk through a lot of neighborhoods that I had never been to before, even though I have lived in this city for several years.

The thing I remember most about today was walking over a skywalk. There were hundreds of people on this skywalk because it was the only place you could use to cross the four lane highway. The highway was stuck in wall-to-wall traffic.

As I walked by the overpass there was an old black man playing the drums. I think he was blind, and ironically — for a drummer — he had little sense of rhythm. He was drumming for money, and most people — everyone, really — walked past him without paying much attention. That is the price of being a drummer without any rhythm, I suppose.
