Yesterday, I played a good son & shuttled my momma around Detroit to run a few errands. Our last stop was the grocery store near her home because she just had to have some rainbow sherbet.

Upon pulling up to the grocery store, we noticed a woman playing a flugelhorn & we both said aloud, it’s too cold to be standing around playing an instrument.

So I decided to park my car to listen to her play while I waited for my momma to finish shopping. While I listened, I observed several people offer tips as she shifted between playing her horn & singing & she was good! Like really good.

Before my momma came back to the car, I walked up to the flugelhornist to give her a few bucks for the talent & time that she shared. She graciously thanked me & told me that her name was Ms. Maria Peace On Earth. Seems like a fitting name!
