These days, living in northern VA can be stressful, especially when you are driving. People around here seem to always be on the go, impatient and perhaps a little unfriendly. So, it is refreshing to see someone who doesn't fit the mold, who is upbeat and makes you laugh. Like tuba guy. J and I first noticed him when we moved to our new house. "Hey, have you noticed that guy playing the tuba and walking along the side of the road?" "Oh yea, I meant to say something earlier." Then, we started realizing that we were seeing him all the time. Actually, usually at least once per day. So I started waving. And he waved back. Now, every time I see him walking, playing his tuba, it makes my day. Just something so fun and fancy free about playing a tuba down a busy street.
