Still Life--Man in Tree, Playing Instrument

I was walking through campus with a visiting friend Autumn yesterday afternoon on our way to the old summer palace when this gentleman's music rose to greet us.  According to Autumn, the musician had been there in the morning too.  Sitting in a tree, above the Tomb Sweeping Day holiday traffic around No Name Lake.  One pauses to admire this.  In a tree.  All tasks of the day put on hold while he made music.  His winter-like jacket is misleading.  The day he chose to fill with this instrument was picture perfect balmy spring.  This takes hutzpah.  And obviously enough wind to make music for the better part of a day.  Oh for a recording...
