This is Garry.
We met by chance today in a little town called Ontario, Oregon. Our tour bus was parked next to his van in an empty lot near the hotel. Garry said hello as I got off the bus and we swapped stories for a good while in the afternoon and realised we both have a similar way of life, wandering around from place to place, meeting people as we go.
Later, he gave me a framed picture from his van as a gift and in return I gave him one of my harmonicas. Turns out he has an old chromatic harmonica which he plays for his dog, Sasha from time to time, so I was happy to add to his collection. We spoke some more and I asked if it would be okay to take a photo to remember the moment.
It’s encounters with people like Garry that remind me again how much I love this life.
