One day, I was on the phone with a musician friend and we were bouncing around ideas and talking about musicians that we knew. I enquired about a musician that I had not seen in several years and my friend told me the most amazing story about this guy.
We’ll call the guy Guitarist and call the girl Waitress.
It turned out that Guitarist found religion and then immediately afterwards fell on hard times and was homeless living in an alley behind a restaurant. Even though he was homeless, he never pawned his guitar and kept it with him and often played it while he was in the alley.
Every day at a certain time, Waitress would come out of the restaurant and see Guitarist sitting in the alley and feel sorry for him and give him food. He never begged, she just did it out of the kindness of her heart and he always thanked her.
One day, Waitress came out to give Guitarist some food in the middle of him playing his guitar. He had his head down and didn’t notice her because he was playing. Waitress froze in her tracks. She thought that the music that he was playing was the most beautiful thing she had ever heard. As a result, she actually talked to him for a change instead of just dropping some food in his lap which resulted in her taking him home and cleaning him up.
Some time later, Waitress and Guitarist started dating, ended up getting married and having children and then started their own business together.
