This is Peter Bonev - the legendary Bulgarian bagpiper - playing outside in Sofia.
As a writer, I’ve always envied musicians - but I think the thing I’m most jealous of is their ability to busk. Guys like Peter can take their instruments outside and transfix anyone who chooses to pay attention.
But maybe a writer can busk after all? Maybe I can take my typewriter somewhere and write poems and love letters and goodbye letters on the spot? People can pay nothing - or whatever they think my words are worth.
On July 31, I’m going to try word busking at the Boxhagener Platz Flohmarkt in Berlin.
