Happiness as Anarchy #37: Little gigs in little bars in little towns

I love doing gigs in my little home town, playing for the people who make up my community. Friday night I played at a new bar – Pearl & Rose – that opened just for the evening. My friend Chantel owns the bar, her kids are friends of my kids, half the people there I knew, and I met a bunch of other locals I’d not yet crossed paths with. I sang songs and watched everyone enjoying the best of a small community while they ate curry and sipped wine. If I could do that every Friday night I would be a very happy little ukulele player.

Here’s a photo captured by the very clever Jase de Vence, another lovely local:
