It's a bit troubling that people find the guy more lovable because he can do tricks, so to speak. I mean, why does a musician deserve sympathy for being homeless more than someone else? Does it just seem surprising to folks that a homeless person could be talented? And is that because they assume that homeless people are homeless because they're bums generally?
I don't know. Maybe I'm reading too much into it. People get surprised by musical talent. Maybe they're just awed at it, and that's ok.
I'll say this though..in the comments there I notice someone(s) thought if he can play music, then he can work as a musician. mm. Truth about the economy is work is hard to find. Real hard. Doesn't matter if you have skills.
I made a friend in Finland who didn't understand that we have homeless people,
because she says Finland doesn't allow that to happen to people there.
I wish the US was more like Finland.
