Diversity/Magic – September 8, 2015

Photo by

I had the most amazing discussion with Piper after his COPS AND ROBBER’S performance on Saturday. We were in the Marsh Berkeley Cabaret talking about what it is like when he is performing and how different it is when he is Alameda County Sheriffing. Two such different “roles.”

It made me want to interview him for our Marsh web series–thinking you might all be interested in this as well. We are hoping to do this in the next couple of weeks. I will keep you posted.

On the other side of the Bay, I got off BART to hear the most magical saxophone playing. It brought tears to my eyes. I tipped into his sax case. Later that week, I was walking and there at the corner of 19th and Valencia, there was a violinist playing on top of a fire hydrant. Didn’t see his case!

So much diversity.
