As I get older this lifestyle I lead becomes increasingly more complex. I find myself suffering with health issues, aches and pains that are accentuated by siting outdoors on a concrete floor as well as lack of energy. As the body gets older it does take a toll and there is nothing you can really do to improve things. I have noticed, over the years, that each year that swings past takes a little more out of you. I am a little bit worried about the future if truth be told.
I would say, that most people out there busking are done with that life by the time they reach their 40’s – in that case I am only a few short years off the mark! I really should be doing something a little more with my life but honestly I just love the freedom of moving around the city – nowhere to be or go! That freedom is something that very few people get to experience.
With the sun shining every day and many other colorful characters to interact with – as you can see in the video above – it is always a great day to be outside. No corporate nonsense or finance deals to worry about – no credit card debt or major stress, I could go on, but I am sure you get the idea.
I have been thinking about taking a trip to London next year – I would have to wait for spring as I am not sure i could stomach the winter there. I have heard that there is a thriving busking community there and it is quite accepted for people to be out on the streets. In order to achieve this I will need to save up quite a bit of cash first so time will tell.
For now, though, I will just carry on as normal.
