Beauty All Around, in Unexpected Places

My location near the border with Mexico means things are done differently here. Our governor locked our state down tight, but our visitors from Mexico do not care and probably don't even know this. Their lives in Juarez are very difficult, in the best of times. And now, some are very desperate. Today when I stopped by the grocery store to pick up some things, I heard glorious music. I was surprised, because the piped out music is usually awful. But it wasn't coming from the store; it was a mother and daughter musical duo. The mother was dressed beautifully with a silver lamé overlay to her flowing pants, and played song after song on her violin. The daughter handled the amplifier and a sign telling of their plight. The sign was in English, but the pair had no English, so I used my awful Spanish to convey how lovely the music was. 

There is so little cash in our society now! The homeless, the Salvation Army kettle crew, and the wait staff are all feeling it. I try to carry some but it all can be distributed just within a single trip.  Today I had great luck, in that the violin player was still there after my trip into the store to get some cash. There was a bit of a wait to get into the store, as it was limited to 75 people inside at any given time.

I'm moving slow this week due to a series of surgeries I'm having. In the old days, such surgeries meant resting in bed. Now it means out you go from the surgical center, walk every hour, and don't use any sedation or pain killers if you want to keep up with your errands! 

I got a bit of a snippet of the violin music from inside the car on my way out. I'll try to post it here. I haven't posted videos before, so it's iffy whether it will work. I'll post a still picture, too. I was too shy to get closer, felt it might be intrusive. Here's hoping the video will play!

CLICK THE SECOND PHOTO and the video will play!

Thank'ee for stopping by.

    Kind regards,
