The Very Thought of You


The clarinet player I met on San Francisco’s Embarcadero a couple of years ago; he started playing in 1947 when he was young, and hasn’t stopped.  I haven’t seen him the last few times I’ve been in the City. I hope he is well, and continues to play beautiful music where ever he is. I keep running by this photo in my files, and the very thought of hearing that lovely clarinet down by the waterfront makes me stop every time.

Thanks to A Word in Your Ear for this springboard in her challenge, Face

  3. There’s something hauntingly beautiful about the sound of a clarinet – happy yet with an undertone of sadness.

    Beautiful photo and sentiment Angeline.


  5. That is thoughtful of you to remember this talented man. I do hope is well and good as well. I think it enriches us when we truly observe and open ourselves to the people around us.

    Loved the photo, I have clarinet in mind for my son and this has inspired me to move on and actually get him one. So much nicer sound than the bleep of a DS.

      It sounded beautiful this day of the photo; and I’ve heard some incredible clarinet from a street musician in the City who stands in the corner of buildings in the financial district; the echo off the buildings is magical.
