April 17. Day 107. No strings attached
True friends help out without conditions. Today one such knight in shining armour came to my rescue to lend a hand. I was looking at all the balls I needed to try to keep in the air today and realised that it was just not going to happen. My mate Anthony, without flinching, took on one of my commitments and asked nothing in return. That's a true friend. I'm pretty sure he knows I'd do the same for him but I'm equally sure that didn't influence his decision to help out. Mates help mates.
So today's photo is of the steady hands of busker Po Lin Fu in the Queen Street Mall this afternoon.
Po was entertaining crowds by moving a floating ball around with no strings attached. Not once did he drop the ball. He made it look effortless even though there was doubtless a lot going on we couldn't see. This seemed to sum up today perfectly.
