Wollongong, September 2013. A man, I think his name is John, performing in the street. He was busking near a bus stop. After a while he moved to opposite the cinema and a man crossed the road to put a $20 note in his hat. This was more generous than what I had paid for the entertainment (he was breakdancing to hip hop amplified via his smartphone). When he saw the note he called his girlfriend over, then looked skyward and mouthed ‘thank you’.
