P.T. Barnum is credited with the saying "There's a sucker born every minute." I have always known that I am one, a sucker that is. I make no apologies for not being able to pass by a child begging, especially one playing a sad song on an accordion. When I looked into the eyes of the child Gypsies that I came across in Greece, I still saw a helpless child, even after one of them called someone a Mother F*^*$#, when he was dissatisfied with the amount of money he was given as a tip for playing his sad song.
There seemed to me, an irony, with a sweet girl playing her sad accordion on the most beautiful island of Santorini while two tourists, with a spectacular view, seemed oblivious to her standing next to them. She seemed intrigued with my harmonica, which I played for her and it made her smile.
