Morning Commute

Morning Commute

Move quickly up and down the stairs
Keep the pace
Better not waste a second
For this is the morning race
See the seriousness in that face
Ready set go, watch as the crowd flows
Universally agreed, there is a need for speed
A slight plea
Coffee or tea
as the rushing women, rushing men,
Do they welcome the notes from the solo violin?

Great illustration! I love it, as I really enjoy subway musicians. I am looking forward to seeing more of your subway musicians illustrations. May I suggest a subject for an illustration, which I think might be interesting? - I often see the 'Saw Lady' playing at the Times Square and the Union Square subway stations in the afternoons. You might want to check her out - she plays a musical saw, which is a very visual instrument, the way it creates shapes while being played. The permit banner of the 'Saw Lady' advertises her website: www.SawLady.com
Keep up the good work!

I did see SawLady, I will carry along my camera this coming week.
Continue watching, as I am doing my Graduate Capstone work on Subway musicians.
