Emery Carl

If you have strolled into the Pike Place Market in the last 10 years, you most likely have seen Emery, and he probably was balancing a guitar on his chin, while playing another one, with a harmonica, Rubik's cube, food janglers, and hula hoop all in the mix. Emery has become like a brother to me, and has taught me much about life, none of them being how to balance a guitar, but more of balancing out things in life. I am always fascinated by the looks of the tourists when they see him. I am seeing folks of all ages minds get blown, or a memory getting burned, and seeing that makes life more joyous.
